Jose Mandojana

Jose Mandojana is a Spanish/Argentine photographer based in Seattle who recently shot a story for Wired Magazine about a man who has built his own space suit. Meet Cameron Smith.  He’s a anthropology professor at Portland State and a contributor to Scientific America.  His childhood dream was to be an astronaut,  but poor vision killed that hope.  Most of us would just forget about those early dreams and move on to something else, but Cameron has decided to build his own ballon and spacesuit and head into space on his own.  The guy isn’t crazy.  He’s super intelligent, rational, and fun to be around.  He also said he’d never do it if he didn’t feel safe.
