Alex "Sandy" Antunes is an astrophysicist who turned to science writing upon realizing the desire to understand the universe doesn't mean you have to be the one to discover everything personally. There's a lot of excellent science out there, and Sandy enjoys bringing it to the world's attention.
Sandy recently achieved a professorship at Capitol College's Astronautical Engineering department, which he credits to his NASA work, his solo build of the Project Calliope picosatellite, and his writing for Science 2.0 and via O'Reilly Media.
"With DIY Satellite Platforms, you too can safely launch a small basic satellite into space safely and with satisfactory results. The book is a quick read, only 80 pages long, short of formulas and long on practical information, and should inspire physics and science teachers and students to create some hands-on space experience for themselves or their classes."
