Просматриваю регулярно отчёты и биографии команд Mars Desert Research Station (MDRS).
От этого зимнего сезона сильное впечатление, в каком плане - большое количество женщин, как в командах, так и среди командиров миссий.
Но фотография, которая мне понравилась, с мужчиной и ракетой:
Вилл Ю: 24-х летний главный инженер миссии 110a (Will Yu: Chief Engineer/Executive Officer)
Will is a 24 year-old astronautical engineering graduate student at the University of Southern California pursuing his Ph.D. studying electric propulsion. Will graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a B.S. in engineering mechanics and astronautics.
As the Chief Engineer of the MDRS crew 110A, Will oversees the day-to-day operations and maintaining the functionality of the station.
Will was a member of the Badger Exploration Loft (BXL) team that won NASA's 2011 X-Hab Academic Innovation Challenge, which contributed to the goals of the Deep Space Habitat (DSH) for NASA’s Desert Research and Technology Studies (DRATS). He has worked with the UW-Madison Shock Tube Laboratory as a lab assistant investigating Rictmyer-Meshkov and Rayleigh Taylor instabilities between gases to further understand inertial confinement fusion (ICF). Will has also interned at Masten Space System, Inc., where he performed field testing of vertical-takeoff-vertical-landing (VTVL) rockets as part of NASA's Commercial Reusable Suborbital Research (CruSR) program.
Will grew up in Madison, WI and enjoys playing ultimate frisbee, snowboarding, rock climbing, skydiving, and scuba diving.
