Michael P. Belfiore

Michael's book Rocketeers is the first to chronicle the birth of the commercial space age. His The Department of Mad Scientists is the first to go behind the scenes at DARPA, the Pentagon agency that gave us the Internet and many other breakthrough technologies that have changed our lives for the better.

Michael has been excited about space travel and future technology since he discovered Robert Heinlein's Rocket Ship Galileo in his local public library at the age of six. In addition to writing books, he reports on what's next for major magazines and on his blog at www.michaelbelfiore.com and speaks to audiences around North America.

He lives in New York state's Hudson River Valley with his wife and two daughters.
