Just got my New Horizons Pluto Mission "Baseball Cards" today. I'm #16. This was just before launch of the spacecraft - the rocket is over my right shoulder.

Outside Magazine interviewed me recently about my role on the New Horizons mission to Pluto, and they asked about its comparison to skydiving. Here's the article.

After a more than nine-year, three-billion-mile journey to Pluto, it’s show time for our New Horizons spacecraft, as the flyby sequence of science observations is officially underway. This view from just under 5 million miles away is centered roughly on the area that will be seen close-up during New Horizons’ July 14 #PlutoFlyby. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1gojoDp

A producer of Carl Sagan's original Cosmos series asked me to take part in a short video about how the New Horizons mission to Pluto is similar to skydiving. I was game, so we went to Mile-Hi Skydiving Center in Longmont, CO on a blustery October day in 2014 to film it. This is what we came up with. What a blast! Thanks to Nate at Mile-Hi Skydiving for helping us do this and Steven Thoene and Blake Pratt for the aerial freefall footage! What a blast!
