Planetary scientist Dr. Alan Stern, the principal investigator of the New Horizons mission to Pluto, has participated in a total of 29 space missions. The U.S. Library of Congress chair of astrobiology, Dr. David Grinspoon, studies climate evolution, the conditions for life in the cosmos, and space-exploration strategy. In Chasing New Horizons, Stern and Grinspoon go "inside and then beyond" the science, politics, and egos of the three billion-mile trip to Pluto.
