The long­time sci­ence writer put his MIT de­gree in earth and plan­e­tary sciences to use for “Un­lock­ing the So­lar Sys­tem” (p. 32). He pro­filed Scott Bolton, a pi­o­neer­ing space physi­cist and win­ner of this year’s In­ge­nu­ity Award in phys­i­cal sciences. Irion said of Bolton’s work, “There’s so much we don’t know about the outer so­lar sys­tem. It takes enor­mous cre­ativ­ity and dar­ing to de­sign a mis­sion that will ex­plore it in a brand-new way.”
