Steve Smith

A former astronaut and  globally respected business leader and diplomat, Steve Smith is also an electric vehicle  evangelist.

 

Steve always wanted to fly in space. His path began with two engineering degrees, an MBA, and his pilot's license from Stanford. Upon graduation he joined IBM as a semiconductor engineer and 7 years later joined NASA. As a NASA astronaut, he flew on four space shuttle missions and performed seven spacewalks, including five to repair the Hubble Space Telescope. His time in space gave him an unshakable appreciation of the threat of climate change to our planet.

 

After his fourth mission, Steve served as a Diplomat for 12 years  in the role of the United States’ space station representative to the European Space Agency. He facilitated a multi-national effort to reach consensus balancing financial, technical, and political realities.

Steve Smith

Astronaut, Business Leader, Diplomat 

A former astronaut and  globally respected business leader and diplomat, Steve Smith is also an electric vehicle  evangelist.

He's a graduate of Stanford Business School (and the only MBA ever selected to be an astronaut by NASA), has two electrical engineering degrees from Stanford, and started his career at IBM in semiconductor fabrication.  

 

Steve flew in space four times traveling 16 million miles and circling Earth nearly 650 times. His view from space gave him an unshakable appreciation of the Earth as an island oasis, as a place we are privileged to be, and as a place must protect for future generations. He recognized its fragility and the immense threat of climate change. As he puts it, "Earth's sirens are sounding" and we need to change the way we treat and respect Earth.

After his fourth mission, Steve served as a Diplomat for 12 years as a liaison to both the European and Russiain Space programs. He now serves as director on multiple boards, consults to Silicon Valley venture capitalists, and is a corporate motivational speaker.
