Dave Mosher channels his boundless curiosity to chase down fascinating and important stories in space, physics, engineering, energy, biology, and more.
As a correspondent at Business Insider, he tells those tales with a conversational approach using text, photos, data, graphics, video, and whatever’s next.
Prior to joining Business Insider in April 2015, Mosher served as the online director of Popular Science. He’s also a former Wired contributor and has written for Scientific American, Popular Mechanics, Discover, Space.com, National Geographic News, Discovery.com, Health News Review, and other outlets and projects.
Mosher has watched humans and robots launch into space, flown over the North Pole to catch a total solar eclipse, toured cutting-edge (and defunct) nuclear reactors, and donated his poop bacteria in the name of science, among other reporting adventures during his career of more than a decade.
He lives in New York City with his part-human, part-canine family.
