He received his B.S. in Planetary Science and Aeronautics from Caltech, his M.S. and Ph.D. in Geology &amp; Geophysics from the University of Hawaii, and served as a National Research Council postdoctoral research fellow at NASA's Ames Research Center. <a href="http://jimbell.sese.asu.edu/research-group">Jim's research group</a> primarily focuses on the geology, geochemistry, and mineralogy of planets, moons, asteroids, and comets using data obtained from telescopes and spacecraft missions.</p> <p>Jim is an active planetary scientist and has been heavily involved in many NASA robotic space exploration missions, including the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR), Mars Pathfinder, Comet Nucleus Tour, Mars Rovers <em>Spirit</em>, <em>Opportunity</em>, <em>Curiosity</em>, and <em>Mars 2020</em>, Mars Odyssey Orbiter, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter. Jim is the lead scientist in charge of the <a href="http://pancam.sese.asu.edu">Panoramic camera (Pancam)</a> color, stereoscopic imaging system on the <em>Spirit</em> and <em>Opportunity</em> rovers, is the Deputy Principal Investigator of the Mastcam camera system on the <em>Curiosity</em> rover, and is the Principal Investigator for the Mastcam-Z cameras on NASA's upcoming <em>Mars-2020</em> rover. As a professional scientist, Jim has published 38 first-authored and more than 215 co-authored research papers in peer reviewed scientific journals, has authored or co-authored more than 650 short abstracts and scientific conference presentations, and has co-edited or edited three scientific books for Cambridge University Press (one on the NEAR mission: "<a href="http://www.amazon.com/Asteroid-Rendezvous-NEAR-Shoemakers-Adventures/dp/0521813603/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpi_4">Asteroid Rendezvous</a>"; the other two on Mars: "<a href="http://www.amazon.com/Martian-Surface-Composition-Mineralogy-Properties/dp/0521866987/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpi_5">The Martian Surface: Composition, Mineralogy, and Physical Properties</a>" and "Remote Compositional Analysis: Techniques for Understanding Spectroscopy, Mineralogy, and Geochemistry of Planetary Surfaces"). He has been an active user of the Hubble Space Telescope, and of a number of ground based telescopes, including several at Mauna Kea Observatory in Hawaii.</p> <p>Jim is also an extremely active and prolific public communicator of science and space exploration, and is President of <a href="http://www.planetary.org/">The Planetary Society</a>, the world's largest public space education and advocacy organization. He is a frequent contributor to popular astronomy and science magazines like Sky &amp; Telescope, Astronomy, and Scientific American, and to radio shows and internet blogs about astronomy and space. He has appeared on television on the NBC "Today" show, on CNN's "This American Morning," on the PBS "Newshour," and on the Discovery, National Geographic, Wall St. Journal, and History Channels. He has also written many photography-oriented books that showcase some of the most spectacular images acquired during the space program: <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&amp;location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fexec%2Fobidos%2Ftg%2Fdetail%2F-%2F0525949852&amp;tag=jibesmypa-20&amp;linkCode=ur2&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325">Postcards from Mars</a> (Dutton/Penguin, 2006), <a href="http://jimbell.sese.asu.edu/books/mars-3d">Mars 3-D</a> (Sterling, 2008), <a href="http://jimbell.sese.asu.edu/books/moon-3d">Moon 3-D</a> (Sterling, 2009), <a href="http://jimbell.sese.asu.edu/books/the-space-book-250-milestones-in-the-history-of-space-astronomy">The Space Book</a> (Sterling, 2013), and  <a href="http://www.amazon.com/The-Interstellar-Age-Forty-Year-Voyager/dp/0525954325">The Interstellar Age: Inside the 40 Year <em>Voyager</em> Mission</a> (Dutton, 2015).
