Currently he is employed as a configuration analyst for Dell Computers.  Charles remembers watching early Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo launches.  All manned space endeavor is important to him.

2. Sunday, April 28, 2013, 12-1:30 PM PDT (19-20:30 GMT)
comes to the program. Marc will discuss his thesis research regarding the space policy of JFK and Nixon, plus lots more.
Marc A. Fusco was fortunate to have watched Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon and has never quite been the same. Marc maintained his love of all things space throughout a career as an award-winning teacher and Shakespeare scholar, and later as a management consultant and business executive. Not content to be a bystander and fan of the US space program, Marc left his life in business and returned to school for an MS in Space Studies at the University of North Dakota, which he received in December of 2012. He is now a consultant and writer focusing on commercial space and space policy, but his knowledge and love of all things space stretches to space history, planetary science, astrobiology, astronomy, and orbital mechanics, among other things. Marc has published nearly a dozen articles on commercial space and recently became a NASA / JPL Solar System Ambassador, and has delivered public talks on space policy, history, and current commercial space and NASA/JPL missions.
