Booz Allen Hamilton
What and Who?
Marc Leatham is a new career Space Systems Engineer working for Booz Allen Hamilton in El Segundo. His work tasks focus on modeling The Gateway Spacestation for NASA, but his true love for science and space stems from the unique hobby of taking pictures of nebulae and galaxies with his backyard telescope. In recent years his work has begun to gain more attention, resulting in it being hung in establishments around the world. When possible, Marc travels the western states presenting the story of finding a love for engineering through discovering the cosmos, and how you can too.
