He is a Raytheon Principal Engineering Fellow, AIAA Fellow and SPIE Fellow. He and his wife Dana live in Hermosa Beach and Solvang, California.

Dr. Puschell been a space guy since first grade. His earliest memory of wonder is from a dark summer night. After arriving home with his family, his father picked him up from the back seat of their 1959 Edsel to carry him into the house, because he had been asleep. As his father picked him up, he woke up and looked up at the summer Milky Way, immediately awestruck. That moment propelled him to who he is today. His parents reinforced that wonder on his next birthday with a 2.5 inch Gilbert Newtonian reflector telescope, which he used until he made an 8 inch Newtonian reflector from an Edmund kit in junior high school. Along the way, he made and launched Estes rockets, entered and won awards in local, regional, state and national science fairs. He has been blessed with a life of endless wonder that he is always happy to share with others.

Ms. MiMi Aung is a project manager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, where she is leading the project to develop a Mars helicopter technology demonstration. Since joining JPL in 1990 she has performed various roles in multiple disciplines on space flight and Deep Space Network (DSN) projects, technology development, and line management. She is passionate about space exploration, especially to advance the autonomous capability of spacecraft exploring deep space.

She started in the DSN development of its first operational digital receiver system, the Block V Receiver. She developed, analyzed, and tested receiver algorithms, and continued work through implementation to operationalization at all three DSN complexes across the globe. She then led a multidisciplinary team to evaluate the applicability of the monopulse technique for precise pointing of the 34-meter-diameter antennas, leading to operational use in the DSN. She next worked on the Earth Orbiting System Microwave Limb Sounder instrument as a cognizant engineer for the 240 GHz radiometer.

In 2000 she became project element manager for the autonomous formation flying sensor on the StarLight two-spacecraft interferometer mission, where she applied her knowledge of transmit/receive systems to the determination of interspacecraft range and bearing measurement for precise formation flying of multiple spacecraft. She went on to become the project element manager for formation flying on the Terrestrial Planet Finder project.

In 2003 she took on the additional duty of technical group supervisor, a line management position, for the Guidance, Navigation & Control (GN&C) Sensors Group, where she was involved in next-generation sensor technologies required for future spaceflight missions. Her technical interest expanded to next-generation GN&C capabilities for increasingly autonomous space exploration. In 2010 she became manager of the Guidance and Control Section, where she emphasized the development of advanced GN&C technologies and their infusion in future missions for precision entry, descent, and landing on planetary surfaces; proximity operations about small bodies; multispacecraft precision formation flying; and precision pointing of spacecraft. In 2013 she became deputy manager of the Autonomous Systems Division responsible for spacecraft GN&C, power, avionics, flight software, and robotics. Since 2015 she has been the lead for Mars Helicopter technology demonstration development.

Ms. Aung earned her BS (1988) and MS (1990) in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her MS thesis was in the area of signal processing and communications.

———————————————-

“Future Propulsion: Nuclear fission, fusion, and beyond.”
Nuclear propulsion promises performance many orders of magnitude better than chemical propulsion. Chemical propulsion can give us the moon, but nuclear propulsion can give us the solar system and even the stars. In this talk, I will discuss the theoretical underpinnings of nuclear propulsion, the historical experiments, and the prospects for the future. At the discretion of the organizers, I can focus on fission, fusion, or other future concepts.

Jim Cavera is a senior engineer with Blue Origin. He has undergraduate degrees in optical engineering and physics, and his graduate work was in nuclear engineering and aerospace engineering, during which he explored the use of dense plasma focus devices for interstellar travel. He has served for many years on AIAA’s Nuclear and Future Flight technical committee and is currently its publication director. His current research is in neutronics and MHD codes for fusion device simulation.

Tim received his PhD in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Texas where he was a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow and Assistant Instructor. He began his professional career in 2000 at the NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, TX where he was a lead engineer in the Engineering Directorate’s Aeroscience and Flight Mechanics Division. During his tenure at JSC he worked on the navigation design for Mars Science Lander and was the Orbit Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GNC) System Manager for the Orion spacecraft. In 2009, Dr. Crain became the Flight Dynamics lead for NASA’s Project Morpheus that followed a low cost, lean project development model to build and flight test a terrestrial version of a lunar lander incorporating advanced liquid methane propulsion, precision landing, and autonomous hazard detection and avoidance. The experience on Morpheus demonstrated how small teams of motivated engineers can rapidly innovate and apply available and emerging technologies to effectively solve tough technical problems. This was a primary motivation for Dr. Crain co-founding Intuitive Machines with partners Dr. Kam Ghaffarian and Steve Altemus in 2013.

Dr. Crain is a recipient of the NASA JSC Center Director’s Commendation Award, the Outstanding Young Texas Ex Award, UT Outstanding Young Engineering Graduate Award, Orion Flight Dynamics Leadership Award, and a finalist for the NASA Rotary Mid-Career Stellar Award.
