Pedro VazquezPedro A. Vazquez first developed a deep interest in spaceflight after witnessing the launch of STS-1 the first space shuttle mission, from the shores of the Banana River. As a longtime Central Florida resident, he became enamored with the roaring liftoffs and thunderous sonic booms which were the hallmarks of key moments in shuttle missions. As an avid skydiver whose home dropzone Skydive Space Center in Titusville, Fl . hosted frequent shuttle liftoff skydiving events, he has viewed launches from a unique point of view. His past credited affiliations include Nickelodeon Studios and Discovery Channel where he contributed to live audience and scripted shows such as Games and Sports for Kids (Nick G.A.S.), Slime Time Live, and Home Matters. His photography and videography skills have also been instrumental in the preservation of evidence in hundreds of civil litigation cases. He continues to share his deep affinity for spaceflight with anyone within earshot and is especially interested in outreach to the next generation of space explorers. @deliciousblur
