Scientist. Explorer. Educator. TV Host.


Ben McGee’s passion for science and space exploration has led him across the globe, from aiming mountaintop observatories at alien volcanoes to drilling through arctic glaciers, and from scouring radioactive craters and chasing dust devils with Mars researchers to rescuing nuclear rocket artifacts and designing habitats for commercial spacecraft manufacturers.  His diverse career has all been a bid to become the ideal field scientist - ready to investigate physical phenomena anywhere on the planet... and hopefully beyond.

A National Fellow of the Explorer’s Club, his ultimate goal is to one day leave boot tracks on another world.



"Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge: it is those who know little, and not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science."

- Charles Darwin, 1871C.E.
