While this might seem a bit far fetched for the average Joe, it is nothing but the truth for SUNY Plattsburgh's geology alum Dr. John Grant.
He is one of only six people responsible for planning the daily activities of Spirit and Opportunity - two Mars rover vehicles which observe and collect data that is regularly sent back to Earth. Dr. Grant's interest in Mars began innocently enough with his favorite childhood book, The Martian Chronicles. From there, he parlayed his interest into a career with NASA Headquarters as a Program Scientist for the Mars Global Surveyor. Nowadays, Dr. Grant spends his time as a Geologist for the Smithsonian Institute's Center for Earth and Planetary Studies at the National Air and Space Museum. His latest project - curating a new exhibit of Mars rover photos in hopes of inspiring a new generation of scientists to be the first people to stand on the planet! CBS recently dropped in on Dr. Grant to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the two Mars rovers and to look at some of the images that Dr. Grant excitedly says, "...No one has ever seen before - no human being.

"Nothing is falling off the table at this point," said John Grant, co-chair of the MSL landing site steering committee and a geologist at the Center for Earth and Planetary Studies at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C. "Nobody should be sobbing wildly in tears if their site doesn't end up as one of the top five," he advised, noting that extra sites are likely to crop up in the near-term.
