About the Author

Robert E. Hampson, PhD., turns science fiction into science in his day job, and puts the science into science fiction in his spare time. Dr. Hampson is a Professor of Physiology / Pharmacology and Neurology with over 35 years’ experience in animal neuroscience and human neurology. His professional work includes more than 100 peer-reviewed research articles ranging from the pharmacology of memory to the first report of a “neural prosthetic” to restore human memory using the brain’s own neural codes.

He consults with authors to put the “hard” science in “Hard SF” and has written both fiction and nonfiction for Baen Books. His own hard-SF and mil-SF have been published by the US Army Small Wars Journal, Springer, Seventh Seal Press, and Baen. He is a member of SIGMA think tank and the Science and Entertainment Exchange—a service of the National Academy of Sciences. Find out more at his website: http://www.REHampson.com.

Les Johnson is a physicist and author. He is the author of Mission to Methone; Rescue Mode, coauthored with Ben Bova; Saving Proxima (forthcoming) coauthored with Travis S. Taylor; and coeditor of the science/science fiction anthologies Going Interstellar and Stellaris: People of the Stars. He was technical consultant for the movies Europa Report and Lost in Space and has appeared in numerous documentaries on the Discovery and Science Channels. Les was also the featured “Interstellar Explorer” in National Geographic Magazine and interviewed for Science Friday. By day, he serves as Solar Sail Principal Investigator of NASA’s first interplanetary solar sail missions and leads research on various other advanced space propulsion technologies at the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

Les is the author or co-author of multiple popular science and science fiction books.

He was the featured Interstellar Explorer in the January 2013 issue of National Geographic Magazine in their issue "celebrating 125 years of exploration," appeared again in the March 2019 issue, and was featured on Public Radio's Science Friday.

Les frequently speaks to the general public about space and science. He regularly speaks to civic and community groups throughout the southeastern United States and has done so in public forums in four countries. One student at the Tec de Monterey in Monterey, Mexico told him that he was "bigger than a rock star." (Now that's something a physicist does not hear very often!) He was the technical consultant for the movies Europa Report and Lost in Space. NPR, CNN, Fox News, The Science Channel and The Discovery Channel have all interviewed him about space and space exploration. He appeared on the Discovery Science Channel in three episodes of their series about interplanetary and interstellar exploration called Exodus Earth, National Geographic Channel's series How to Survive the End of the World and Evacuate Earth.

Les was the "Making It Real" speaker at the EVE Online FanFest which you may watch here: https://youtu.be/eFJ2p8yhxvU

Les is a frequent guest at various science fiction conventions at which he speaks about space, popular science, and, of course, his books. LibertyCon (400 attendees), MidSouthCon (500+ attendees), and DragonCon (20,000 attendees or more) are three conventions at which he is a regular guest speaker. And no, he does not wear pointy ears...

By day, Les is the Solar Sail Principal Investigator for the Near-Earth Asteroid Scout mission (planned to launch in 2021) at the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Les was NASA's Manager for Interstellar Propulsion Research and later managed the In-Space Propulsion Technology Project. He has worked for NASA since 1990 and has served in various technical and management roles. Les was the co-investigator on a Japanese space experiment flown in late 2010. He was the Chief Scientist for the ProSEDS space experiment, thrice received NASA's Exceptional Achievement Medal, and holds 3 space technology patents.

He earned his Master's degree at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN and his Bachelor's Degree from Transylvania University in Lexington, KY. He has numerous peer-reviewed publications and was published in Analog. He is a frequent contributor to the Journal of the British Interplanetary Society and a member of the National Space Society, The World Future Society, and MENSA.
