Jack Bacon has often been called "A New Carl Sagan." He is an internationally-known motivational speaker, a distinguished lecturer (emeritus) of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), and one of the most requested speakers in the USA for topics concerning technology and the factors that shape human society. A noted futurist and a technological historian, he has written three popular books on the pace of technology and society - he has published the acclaimed “My Grandfathers' Clock”, “My Stepdaughter's Watch”, and “The Parallel Bang.” His lectures have captivated tens of thousands of all ages in thirty countries on six continents, and he has appeared on numerous radio and television broadcasts and documentaries. In his daily work, he is on the management team overseeing the construction and operation of the most complicated technical project in history: the International Space Station.

He pioneered the deployment of several artificial intelligence systems, learning his craft at the famed Xerox Palo Alto Research Center.

He was the United States' lead systems integrator of the "Zarya" - the jointly-built spacecraft that forms the central bridge and adapter between all US and Russian technologies on the Space Station. This landmark in technological history was built in Moscow by American and Russian engineers and launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in November 1998.
