Apollo Lunar Surface Journal Banner

Ulrich Lotzmann

I was born in December 1956 and live with my wife Martina and son Christian in Marburg, Germany. There I work at the Medical Faculty of the Philipps-University as a full-time professor and chair of the Department of Prosthodontics and Orofacial Pain.

I have had a fascination for astronomy and space exploration since my childhood in the good old Apollo days. In my spare time I do such things as painting, high-resolution astrophotography, and work on a book that will focus on the Apollo 12 mission.
