NASA'S Braun Lectures On Innovation, Technology At APL Wednesday
Braun serves as the principal advisor and advocate on NASA matters concerning agency-wide technology policy and programs. He received a Bachelor of Science in aerospace engineering from Penn State in 1987, a Master of Science in astronautics from George Washington University in 1989, and a doctorate in aeronautics and astronautics from Stanford in 1996.
Braun recently was honored by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) with the Von Karman Lectureship in Astronautics. The award is given annually to someone who has performed notably and distinguished themselves technically in the field of astronautics. Braun was recognized for significantly advancing the understanding of the challenge of Mars entry, descent, and landing, and for the development of systems concepts and technologies enabling Martian exploration programs.
