Tihomir is an expert in astronomy, space studies and a future astronaut and Mars settler!

He graduated from the Space Studies Program, organized by International Space University and NASA. He first got interested in space exploration when he first saw the Curiosity rover to land on Mars on Aug. 5, 2012 and from then on his interest in space has been growing exponentially reaching the point to quit his former life to pursue a career in space.

He has talked with Buzz Aldrin, the second person to land on the Moon, about possible human exploration of our moon and the planet Mars.

Tihomir is currently founding a space academy for kids and youngsters – for he believes that young people in our times should be greatly involved in STEM initiatives, living in unique times where in several years we will go back to the Moon and step for the first time on Mars.
