Applied Physics Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University

 Being at the right place at the right time is the story of my career: as an undergrad in the U of Minnesota flying balloons, to being invited to Iowa by Van Allen and building 7 instruments in 5 years for Mars, Earth, Moon, Venus, Earth, in that order; and then leaving for JHU/APL to build instruments for IMP-7, 8, Voyager, AMPTE, Galileo, Ulysses, ACE, Cassini, NEAR, MESSENGER, New Horizons, and Parker Solar Probe. It has been quite a ride, including working with the Space Science Board of the Academy and with Congress in advancing NASA’s science program. And I’m happy to still be here to finish “Completing Voyager’s 2 Quest through the Heliosphere to the Galaxy," Nature Astronomy (in press), 2019.
