2015 In Review: Sky’s Calling – and 2016: Chasing’s Completion

Hello Chasers! 2015 was one of the most incredible years for our project. (I have been remiss in updating all of you. I will speak more about my absence at the end.)

Epic Close to 2014! And Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, Chasers! The last few months have been absolutely amazing as we have headed into closing our primary videography for Chasing Atlantis.

An Awesome Time for Space Geeks Like Us

Hey fellow Chasers, Earlier this week I have been reflecting on the time in which we live. It is an amazing time for space geeks like us. 15 years ago the capabilities on the internet weren’t nearly as expansive as they are today. Heck, five years ago it would have been close to impossible for us to pursue such an …

Beneath Her Wing

This past Friday, Paul and I stood beneath the wing of the last space shuttle to fly a mission to space. I could actually read the serial numbers on each of the thermal protection tiles as Atlantis hovered above me on its carrier.
