Antonio Paris grew up in Utuado, Puerto Rico, and today he works as a planetary scientist in Florida researching how to survive on Mars. Since Hurricane Maria, he has returned to Utuado ten times and raised over $100,000 in relief aid, bringing water, food, and medical supplies to the people of his community. He’s also finding ways to translate his research on surviving on another planet into the practical matter of surviving here on Earth.
