Meet Your Host, Explorer Josh


Josh Bernstein is an international explorer, author, diver, and television host who has traveled more than 1,000,000 miles by train, plane, bus, bike, and camel to over 75 countries, exploring the biggest mysteries of our planet in pursuit of knowledge and discovery


Known in over 220 countries and territories around the world for his work

hosting series on the History Channel (Digging for the Truth) and Discovery

Channel (Into the Unknown with Josh Bernstein),  Josh made a name for

himself as an insatiably curious, determined, and authentic host who loves

taking viewers along on adventures from the Amazon to the Arctic

to explore the wonders and mysteries of our planet.


In 2015, Josh signed a multi-year contract with the Smithsonian

Institution to found Explorer At Large, a formal STEM

education program that inspires students to become

explorers in their classrooms and communities.


In the years since, Explorer At Large

has successfully produced and piloted its

content in Ohio classrooms, offering a

mix of immersive videos hosted by 

Josh and standards-aligned activities

designed by teachers and educators.


In 2020, Josh was invited by the Aldrin

Family Foundation to join Project Ianos

as Content Team Leader and bring Explorer

At Large's pedagogy to NASA-inspired content.

"Andy [Aldrin] and I have been friends and dive

buddies for years and we were always looking

for ways to join forces in the education world,

says Bernstein. "When the possibility to create

Project Ianos came up, I jumped at the

opportunity. It's an honor to work

with this team and with NASA."
