About Portfolio


Dave Mosher is a science and technology media professional with more than 15 years of experience reporting, writing, editing, shooting, and producing story-driven content about space, physics, engineering, energy, biology, and absurdly ambitious human endeavors.

Mosher works on the communications team for AST SpaceMobile, which aims to help close a glaring digital divide faced by half of humanity: lack of mobile broadband internet access. The public company (listed on Nasdaq as ASTS) aims to build a fleet of spacecraft that would provide the first direct-to-smartphone broadband connectivity from space — no other hardware or software required — through existing cellular providers. The network AST is building is designed to connect hundreds of millions of devices around the world, help ease poverty, support economic development, build a more equitable and diverse digital society, and save lives.

Prior to joining the satellite and communications industry startup, Mosher was a journalist and senior correspondent at Insider Inc. His reporting took a conversational approach to often exceedingly complex topics using text, photography, data, interactive graphics, video, and other formats for the news sites Insider and Business Insider.

Mosher has also directed Popular Science’s website, was a Wired contributor, and wrote and produced stories for Scientific American, Popular Mechanics, Discover, Space.com, National Geographic News, Discovery.com, Nature, Science, Health News Review, and other outlets and projects.

Mosher has watched humans, robots, and a car launch into space, flown over the North Pole to catch a total solar eclipse, toured cutting-edge (and defunct) nuclear reactors, and donated his fecal bacteria in the name of science, among other reporting adventures.

He lives in the NYC metro area with his part-human, part-canine family.
