Geoffrey Landis at NASA

NASA scientist and science fiction writer Geoffrey Landis is profiled in Cleveland magazine. Here’s an example of the coolness of his life:

In January, he’ll be living on Mars time, getting up 40 minutes later every day to greet the red planet’s sunrise instead of Earth’s. He’s part of a team of 60 NASA scientists who’ll direct the Mars Exploration Rovers every day when the probes wake up with the sun.
