18-Year-Old John Kraus Takes Mind-Blowing Photos Of Rocket Launches On Florida’s Space Coast

If you thought you had a cool job in high school, you didn’t. Meet John Kraus, a 18-year-old junior on Florida’s historic space coast whose incredible photography has been published in National Geographic and Wired magazine. When Kraus isn’t attending class, he’s busy working rocket launches at Cape Canaveral as credentialed news media. Wait, what? Yes, your jealousy is entirely warranted. Since Kraus was 16 he’s been rubbing shoulders with professional photographers and space journalists while SpaceX and United Launch Alliance send rockets to space.
