For the past 15 years, I‘ve worked on various technologies—lowcost, reusable peroxide-kerosene rocket engines reducing cost-toorbit and ice-penetrating probes carrying smart, highly-maneuverable autonomous underwater vehicles to plumb the depths of icy outersolar-system moons, where an independent genesis may await discovery. These technologies are helping our nation lead the next great advancements of humankind—becoming a spacefaring species and discovering life on other planets. The latest effort, Sunfish, Inc., spins off the autonomous underwater exploration, mapping, and inspection capabilities for terrestrial applications.
