Dr. Larry Behers is an astronomer with Project Astro, which is administered by the National Optical Astronomy Observatory.  He spends much of his time in schools, explaining and modeling the seasons, moon phases, the solar system and giving a clear and simplified model for gravity.  The last eight years, Dr. Behers has been part of a team from Uppsala university in Sweden working on ways to use nano-particles and rhizobacteria in promoting performance in complex agricultural environments, with the goal of applying the approach to future agriculture on Mars, the Moon and some asteroids, which will require such a novel approach.  He has spent considerable time in schools at all grade levels and serves as scoutmaster and merit badge counselor for the Boy Scouts of America.
