Lloyd’s first interest in space began when he was a very young boy in the 1960s with the Gemini and Apollo programs, his interest continued in the early 1970s with our continued exploration of our Moon, and was renewed by the Shuttle program. Media coverage in those early days of Gemini and Apollo was huge compared to what today’s mainstream media provides. Television, magazines, and newspapers covered everything that was going on with our space program and it inspired many young people to pursue careers in science and engineering. Lloyd hopes to continue inspiring young people through his work on RocketSTEM. Lloyd enjoys all aspects of space exploration, both human, and robotic, but his primary passions lie with human exploration and the vehicles, rockets, and other technologies that put mankind into space.
