With guidance from members of For All Moonkind’s Leadership Board and Advisory Councils, our project volunteers are contributing across all levels of our organization. They offer invaluable assistance from legal research to awareness raising through social media and student-centric activities to managing our increasing supporter base and newsletters. Our outstanding and dedicated volunteers include:
Emma Kleiner is an undergraduate student at The University of Maryland, College Park, double majoring in Astronomy and Physics and minoring in Public Leadership. She researched molecular clouds and is now researching the link between star formation and environment in interacting galaxies. Her passions have since expanded to include the preservation of heritage in space. Emma has previously interned for Dr. Marlène M. Losier where she researched how the advancement of technologies and exploration both in deep ocean waters and space affects ethical and established international law principles. She is now volunteering with For All Moonkind by researching major international scientific achievements that have contributed to humanity’s first step on the moon. She is thankful to be given the opportunity to help in the effort to preserve human heritage.
Shannon Lange is Curator and museum manager at Blocks to Bricks museum. Before joining Blocks to Bricks, Shannon earned her Master of Arts in Public History from Southern New Hampshire University in 2017. She joined the For All Moonkind team after hearing a presentation during the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing. Her love for space and history inspired her to join the effort to preserve human heritage in space.
Nathan Molina is a second-year law student at Florida State University College of Law. Prior to law school, Nathan interned with the space consulting firm, SpaceTec Partners where he first engaged with For All Moonkind. Viewing human activity in space as a unifying endeavor, Nathan is pursuing a career dedicated to the space industry and gladly joined the For All Moonkind volunteer team. In addition to leading the effort to gather necessary data, Nathan is also engaged in legal research into, among other things, current laws and protocols regarding the registration of spacecraft and space objects.
