About the Author

Pamela Clark grew up in New England and, inspired by President John Kennedy, decided she wanted to explore outer space by the time she was thirteen years old. She obtained her BA from St. Joseph College. While obtaining her PhD in planetary geochemistry from the University of Maryland, she worked at GSFC/NASA outside of Washington DC and the Astrogeology Branch of the USGS in Flagstaff, Arizona, simulating, analyzing, correlating, and interpreting lunar X-ray spectra. She eventually returned Goddard as a member of the XGRS team on the NEAR mission to asteroid Eros. Currently, as a member of the sciences and exploration division at GSFC, Dr. Clark is the science lead in a group to develop new paradigms for the design of space missions and vehicles.

Michael Lee Rilee, Ph.D. is the founder of Rilee Systems Technologies LLC which focuses on advanced computing technologies for autonomous aerospace and robotics applications. Rilee is a plasma physicist and astronomer by training with experience in high performance computing as applied to ground and space-based systems. He was a key researcher in NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's parallel and distributed robotics efforts, including Tetrahedral Robotics.
