Los Angeles based software and spaceflight engineer at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
About Kevin M. Gill
I'm a software and spaceflight engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Los Angeles, California. I also enjoy processing spaceflight imagery as a celebration of nature, art, planetary science, and the collective dream of humankind. Mission data I work with include Cassini, Voyager, Galileo, Curiosity Rover, Perseverance Rover, HiRISE, Juno, Akatsuki, Hubble, and a few more from time to time.
Along with that, I also explore astrophotography from my backyard. I try to specialize in Hydrogen Alpha Solar, and Lunar photography. At times I will experiment with deep space and planetary astrophotography.
Or I might just drag my camera around town, or to the beach. Or the computer is my camera, with digital artworks created in Blender or Maya.
Note: Only images I have processed from publicly available data on my own time and equipment are included. This site is not affiliated with my employer, and no NASA or government funded products generated as part of my day-to-day employment at JPL are included.

As a strong believer in open source software, I publish the code to all utilities that I've written. They are written primarily in Rust or Python.
