Living in Space – Innovate Pasadena w/ Brent Sherwood (JPL) and Dr. Susan Jewell
Event on 2017-06-29 18:45:00
Living in Space is an ongoing series of events sponsored by Innovate Pasadena to encourage cross-pollination of ideas amongst designers, engineers, artists and thinkers that are interested in all aspects of becoming a spacefaring civilization. We will present challenges that stem from both socio-economical and technological perspectives, reaching out to experts from both industry and academia to inform the community about their latest work. Meetups will be highly interactive and engage the audience through a combination of activities that are both fun and thought-provoking.   All events will be streamed online and will allow remote attendees to participate through a live online, Q&A session. SPEAKERS Brent Sherwood is a space architect with 29 years of professional experience in the space industry. He was at Boeing for 17 years, leading teams in concept engineering for human exploration of Mars and the Moon, manufacturing engineering of the International Space Station modules, and program development for multiple commercial and space science projects, including some that actually happened (like Sea Launch) and many that were ahead of their time (including Bigelow modules on the ISS, and Mars Sample Return). He has been at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory for 12 years, where he is Program Manager for planetary mission formulation. He funds and coaches teams that create and propose mission concepts to NASA for scientific exploration of the solar system, including the ocean worlds. He received a B.A. in liberal arts from Yale, a Master of Architecture from the Yale School of Architecture, and an M.S. in aerospace engineering from the University of Maryland. He has published and presented over 50 papers on the exploration, development, and settlement of space; including the book Out of This World: The New Field of Space Architecture. He is Vice Chair of the AIAA Space Architecture Technical Committee, and on the Board of the American Astronautical Society. Topic of Discussion – Moon Village: What Could Happen in Your Lifetime Dr. Susan Jewell has been involved in the areas of space exploration, healthcare, STEM education, entrepreneurship for many years. She is a space research scientist and an alumni of Singularity University and International Space University. Susan is trained in astronautic simulations and analog research, space  medicine. She is President, Mars Academy USA, Mars Without Borders, and Space Surgery Institute. These organizations are focused on technological and innovative concepts, R&D in order to improve quality of life in Space and on Earth. Additionally they are platforms for promoting S.T.E.A.M education/outreach programs and pioneering visionary ideas to support human space exploration and future settlements on Mars. Susan completed a teaching fellowship at Exosphere Academy where she developed, tested and spearheaded the 8 weeks Mars Colonization and Mars Analog Astronaut Simulation Training Program. Now she is focused on developing the program in USA for Next Gen young astronauts, professionals and citizen scientists. Her long-term vision to help develop the first commercial astronaut corp where the organization will provide services to the commercial space industries. She is the recipient of many awards, including the prestigious, Marie Marvingt Award in Technologies and Innovations for Space, a honor bestowed by Aerospace Medical Association (AsMA) recognizing pioneering visionaries in space exploration. Susan was the recipient of National Space Foundation "Living in Space" Award for her work in analog astronautics research.  Topic of Discussion – Mars Analog Astronautic Simulation Training integrating exponential technologies for Martian Settlements AGENDA • 6:45 – 7:15: Networking – Enjoy some pizza and drinks! • 7:15 – 7:40: Dr. Susan Jewell • 7:40 – 8:05: Brent Sherwood • 8:10 – 8:55: Brainstorming Jam • 8:55 – 9:00: Space Co-op Updates  PARKING If you do not find street parking, then the cheapest and closest parking lots are the following, where the first 90 minutes are free (/hour thereafter):  • Marriott Parking Facility @ 171 N.
