Steve Layer is a space and science enthusiast who discovered a lifelong passion and appreciation for space exploration, science, and technology beginning in early childhood. He loves to engage people who may not appreciate how technology derived from the efforts in NASA's space programs affect their lives on Earth, and in turn how those technologies are then used to explore the solar system and the greater universe beyond. Originally from the bay area of north of San Francisco, Steve has lived in the Denver metro area of Colorado since 1990 and works as a systems administrator. In the late 1980's Steve served in the Army and was posted from Europe to Southwest Asia where he benefitted from meeting people from diverse countries and cultures, and learning about their world viewpoints. Steve passionately believes that one day becoming a true spacefaring civilization will be vital in humanity's ability to thrive.
