Biographical Information:

Tom Hill decided he wanted to be an aerospace engineer at the age of 6. He received an Air Force ROTC scholarship that allowed him to graduate from Penn State University in 1990. An eight-year Air Force career took him from Colorado to Turkey to California. While staying in the Air Force Reserves, he left active duty and now works for The Aerospace Corporation, supporting civil and military space activities.

Outside of his paid career, Tom maintains an interest in all things related to space, especially human spaceflight. He is an active member of The Mars Society, having led the Analog Rover Project, and founded The Kepler Prize for Mars Mission Design within the organization. He has authored several papers for presentation there, as well as articles for the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Journal of Spacecraft and Rockets and Space Operations Online Magazine, The Space Review, High Frontier (the Air Force journal for space professionals), and Space Times (the Magazine of the American Astronautical Society).
