Dr. Steve is a planetary scientist and NASA Solar System Ambassador who was the first human to see dust devils from the surface of another planet, using the Mars Pathfinder camera, while he was a grad student at UNR. Since then, he continues to study dust devils around Nevada and apply those lessons to understand the surface of Mars. Nevada is home to numerous NASA efforts to train Astronauts for spaceflight to the Moon and learn about distant worlds.
