Mike is an aerospace engineer and a longtime member of the National Space Society (NSS), the Planetary Society, and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). He has worked to establish collaborative efforts among the local NSS, AIAA, etc. chapters on activities such as Yuri’s Night and SpaceUp Phoenix. He has received several awards from AIAA for public policy and STEM outreach activities.

“I hope is that historians of the space movement will find this to be an interesting first-hand account of grass-roots efforts to promote space exploration to the public,” Mackowski said. “Similarly, current space activists can learn from these examples of how to execute large pro-space events.”

The book is now available via Amazon in print and digital and will be available at science cafe: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00WDMVWDW
