HIMARC: High-Speed, Multispectral, Adaptive Resolution Cubesat Imaging Constellation

Ved Chirayath, founder of vedphoto and a Stanford aeronautics and astronautics doctoral candidate, uses cutting edge photography to channel people's scientific curiosity, produce scientifically relevant exhibitions and fund award-winning research. Chirayath's unconventional approach and experience as a Vogue magazine photographer, physicist and NASA Ames scientist have contributed to his photography exhibitions and scientific discoveries since he was in high school, including discovering an extra-solar planet, documenting four new animal species in Madagascar, archival imaging of Mayan ruins and providing one of the highest-resolution images of the 2012 Venus transit and super-moon.
