Howard Bloom is a Visiting Scholar at New York University and the critically acclaimed author of The Lucifer Principle: A Scientific Expedition into the Forces of History (1995) and Global Brain: The Evolution of Mass Mind from the Big Bang to the 21st Century (2000). He is a member of the New York Academy of Sciences, the National Association for the Advancement of Science, the American Psychological Society, the Academy of Political Science, and the Human Behavior and Evolution Society, as well as the founder of the International Paleopsychology Project. He has been written up in every edition of Who’s Who in Science and Engineering since the publication’s inception. The British TV Channel 4 has called Bloom “the Einstein, Darwin, Newton, and Freud of the 21st Century.”

A science prodigy, Bloom has always displayed a wide range of interests and accomplishments, including the arts and music. In 1968 he co-founded Cloud Studio, which became one of the leading avant-garde commercial art studios on the East Coast. In 1971 he became editor of the successful monthly magazine Circus, which was devoted to rock music. And in 1976 he founded the Howard Bloom Organization, Ltd., which became the largest public relations firm in the record industry, with clients including such luminaries as Prince, Michael Jackson, Bob Marley, Bette Midler, John Mellencamp, and many others at that same level of success.

In 2006 Bloom founded the Space Development Steering Committee, a coalition that brought together leaders of NSS, the Mars Society, and the Space Frontier Society, linking them with some former astronauts and a wide range of experts in the space field, and adding Bloom’s public relations expertise to the pot in promoting the space dream.

Bloom is a former member of the Board of Directors of the National Space Society.
