Never in a million years did I think I would get the chance to fly around the moon, but I can’t wait to bring everyone with me.

月の周りを旅できるなんて想像もしていなかったけど、みんなと一緒に行けることがすごく楽しみだよ!


Tim Dodd was born in Iowa, United States in 1985.

Tim is a content creator, photographer, videographer, and musician.

After graduating Cedar Falls High School, Dodd began producing videos and photos to help pay for his education. Dodd pursued photography full time in 2008.

In 2013, Dodd began a photography project called “Everyday Astronaut,” featuring himself in a Russian high altitude flight suit as a whimsical wanderlusting astronaut.

In 2017, Dodd took Everyday Astronaut to YouTube where it quickly grew into a leading source for aerospace information, livestreams, and interviews. Dodd’s mission is to “Bring space down to Earth for everyday people”; he specializes in digesting complex aerospace topics and making them more understandable for the average person through deeply researched and highly visual videos.
