Geza Gyuk is a member of the international VERITAS collaboration, which built and operates the world’s most sensitive TeV gamma-ray observatory. As part of Adler’s AVAST group, he also studies the composition of V-type (basaltic) asteroids, thought to be remnants of larger proto-planetary objects. Gyuk leads Adler’s Far Horizons program, which is building a community of amateurs, students, and volunteers who design, build, and operate space exploration missions.
