Ben has aimed mountaintop observatories at alien volcanoes, drilled through arctic glaciers, scoured radioactive craters, chased dust devils with Mars researchers, helped decommission NASA nuclear rocket facilities, probed aquifers thousands of feet beneath deserted basin & range wilderness, and trained in space centrifuges - all in a bid to become the ideal field scientist, ready to investigate physical phenomena anywhere in the world... (and hopefully beyond.) His ultimate goal is to one day leave boot tracks on another world.
