Zac Trolley

About Me

Futurist - Engineer - Citizen Astronaut

DOB: Dec 30th 1982

Location: Calgary, Alberta

Specialization: Electrical  Engineering


From an early age, Zac had a fascination with Mars. The possibility of people visiting the Red Planet captivated his imagination, fueled by the rover tracks left  by the Pathfinder. From that moment he began to investigate what it would take to move from rover tracks to footprints. This investigation began as a hobby that has transformed into a life goal.
