Former Tennessee QB Joshua Dobbs recently completed an NFLPA externship in which he worked with NASA scientists.

At Tennessee, Dobbs got a degree in aerospace engineering, so you can bet he was excited for Saturday’s NASA-SpaceX launch on Saturday.

Below, you can see him talking about his externship with the organization:

Then, on Saturday, NASA tweeted at Dobbs, and he responded:

Check out Saturday’s successful launch below, the first manned launch from U.S. soil in nearly a decade.

Dobbs spent the first 2 years of his NFL career with the Pittsburgh Steelers. But, last September, he was traded to the Jacksonville Jaguars. He’ll enter the 2020 season as the Jaguars’ backup QB.

With some work at NASA under his belt, Dobbs might be setting himself up for his eventual life after football.
