“I became interested in Space at an early age, and watched the early Project Mercury launches on TV in grade school. My youngest brother was born on the same day as John Glenn’s first American orbital flight. My father was a mathematician and systems analyst for a major aerospace corporation and I was an avid reader of my dad’s Aviation Week & Space Technology magazines.”
Ahrens served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam Era. He studied Political Science, and Spanish and Spanish-American Language and Literature at the University of Missouri- St. Louis. After working at a number of varied jobs he finally earned a B.A. in “Individual Studies” at Columbia College in Columbia, MO.
