Manny Pimenta

Mr. Pimenta has created the virtual reality lunar DVD for PCs, Lunar Explorer ( He is also currently an Applications Engineering Manager for a New Jersey company that engineers and manufactures computer systems used by electric distribution, water, and gas utilities, as well as transportation systems like CTA, Washington Metro, and Amtrak. He has an Electrical Engineering background and a Masters in Computer Science. Like many other people, he has had a life long interest in space exploration. He decided to join the Space Frontier Foundation after attending a Return To The Moon conference in Las Vegas and finding that many of the ongoing private efforts to push the space exploration vision were driven by Foundationers. After so many years of waiting for NASA or the Government to open up space for all of us and becoming disillusioned that it would ever happen, he was encouraged to find that an alternate possibility existed and was gaining viability with each passing year: private enterprise will open space for all of us. He also found that, through the Space Frontier Foundation, he had an opportunity to participate and contribute to this great cause. Mr. Pimenta has been a member of the Board of Directors of SFF. He has been an advocate with the Foundation since 2002 and was the former Advocate Director.
