Soon, Virgin Galactic and Blue Origin private astronauts will fly to space. They’ll look up into the vast blackness beyond our atmosphere onto Earth's curvature and down over New Mexico’s most enchanting geologic landscapes. Experiencing these landscapes first-hand before they fly, up close and personal, will give astronauts even more appreciation of their spaceflight experience.
In the past year, I led Virgin Galactic ticket holders on two educational expeditions as a professional planetary geologist, and now I want to open the same opportunity to you as well!
The above photos show a taste of a recent expedition to Aden volcanic crater, Kilbourne steam-explosion crater, and White Sands National Park with future astronauts. It. Was. AMAZING!! What a view that would be from space!
Whether or not you’ve booked your ride to space, I invite you to join me on a geologic adventure to explore the geology astronauts can see from space. We’ll stay in comfortable accommodations, ride in SUV luxury, and eat at the best restaurants in New Mexico and West Texas.
We have expedition openings on select days in March.-April and Oct.-Dec., 2023, starting at $1050/person (minimum of three or the equivalent price), for 3 nights.
Yours in experiencing our planet,
