NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC): Enabling Missions from Venus to Alpha Centauri

Thursday, 12 January 2017, 1400-1600 hrs

Space is an imposing and harsh environment, but missions are designed to accommodate. Even so, some hurdles may seem insurmountable, if not impossible. The NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts program within NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate invests in concepts that could change aerospace paradigms and break down exploration barriers. This panel will draw on leading innovators to discuss some of exploration's most challenging endeavors -- for example: rovers on Venus, ChipSats around Alpha Centauri, and large habitats for human exploration.

Panelists:

  • Alvin Yew, Program Manager, NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts, Space Technology Mission Directorate, NASA (Moderator)
  • Geoffrey A. Landis, Scientist, NASA Glenn Research Center
  • Mason Alan Peck, Associate Professor, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Cornell University
  • Jonathon Sauder, Technologist, Technology Infusion Group, NASA JPL
  • Robert Skelton, TEES Distinguished Research Professor, Aerospace Technology Research & Operations Center, Texas A&M University
