Larry Kuznetz

Creator of The MarsSuit Project and the Hypernet Paradigm

“Dr. Lawrence Kuznetz was on console at Mission Control during Apollo 11 and introduced the Space Shuttle to the American people on the Johnny Carson Tonight Show. He also helped build Space Shuttle Columbia, demonstrated that water could remain liquid on the surface of Mars and that native extremophiles could survive there. He’s a pioneer in STEM education and is currently building the first spacesuit for Mars and a PPE “Q-suit” based on it that could stop the next pandemic. Dr Kuznetz holds graduate degrees from UC Berkeley and Columbia University, has 8 US patents and is the author of a cli-fi novel about the earth/mars diaspora, an "autobiography" of the space shuttle and a spacesuit users manual for kids 9-90. 

I’m honored to call him my colleague and friend.

STS 114 Astronaut and educator
