He had written columns for Natural History and City of Stars magazine. During Bush's presidency, he was appointed to work for the Commission on the Future of the United States Aerospace Industry in 2001 and President's Commission on Implementation of United States Space Exploration Policy (dubbed as Moon, Mars, and Beyond) in 2004. He also received an award: NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest civilian honor by NASA.
In the mid-2000s, he hosted a miniseries called Origins for PBS Nova Series. He co-authored a volume for the series with Donald Goldsmith and collaborated with him again as a narrator of 400 Years of the Telescope, a documentary that premiered on PBS.
