You can follow Scott’s footsteps here courtesy of the SPOT satellite tracking device.

And you can read Scott’s blog here. It is quite a tale of high adventure.

    Really loving these Skype chats. I have been following Scott’s blog and love getting the opportunity to see the environment in ‘Realtime’. Thanks for putting this effort together and I look forward to seeing more!

    About Me

    I am a 26-year broadcast news veteran - with nearly 17 years as CNN’s science, aerospace, technology and environment correspondent. I am an active pilot, airplane owner and a lover of all things that fly. I was slated to be the first journalist to fly on the space shuttle before the Columbia accident ended that dream. I am based in New York City - married with two teenagers and two dogs.
