 Robert Picardo  - Microsite

In Detail

Robert's acting career began at Yale when he landed a leading role in Leonard Bernstein's Mass and later performed it in the European premiere of that work. Robert, then a biology major, abandoned his pre-med plans and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.A. in Drama. Robert's childhood passion for Biology helped forge his lifelong interest in science and exploration. He served for more than 15 years on the advisory board of The Planetary Society. Tantalizing recent discoveries of water on Mars and the possibility of finding microbial life made the invitation to join The Planetary Society Board auspicious and irresistible.


Robert offers prestige and vast media experience gained from his distinguished career in television, theatre and film. His speeches are peppered with personal stories of his vast career. More so, based on personal experiences Robert is uniquely qualified to build a bridge between science fiction and todays' space exploration and new technologies such as artificial intelligence and robotics.
