Thomas D. Jones, PhD, is a veteran NASA astronaut, scientist, author, pilot and speaker. In more than eleven years with NASA, he flew on four space shuttle missions to Earth orbit. In 2001, Dr. Jones led three spacewalks to install the centerpiece of the International Space Station, the American Destiny laboratory. He has spent fifty-three days working and living in space.  In 2018, Tom was inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.

A Distinguished Graduate of the Air Force Academy, Tom piloted B-52D strategic bombers, earned a doctorate in planetary sciences from the University of Arizona, studied asteroids and robotic exploration missions for NASA and engineered intelligence-gathering systems for the CIA.

Tom is the author of seven space, aviation and history books. “Sky Walking: An Astronaut’s Memoir” was named by the Wall Street Journal as one if its five best books on space. His newest title is “Space Shuttle Stories”, published in 2023 by Smithsonian Books.

Tom served on the NASA Advisory Council and the boards of the Association of Space Explorers and the Astronauts Memorial Foundation. He consults on the future direction of human space exploration, uses of asteroid and space resources and planetary defense. A frequent public speaker, he is often seen on-air delivering expert commentary on science and space flight. Learn more at
