2016 Planetary Science Winter School

Brook Lakew, the Associate Director of Planning and R&D at Goddard’s Space Flight Center has lead a variety of successful missions for NASA. But proposals are often rejected for failing to meet science, technical and cost requirements, a lesson Dr. Lakew has experienced.

Dr. Lakew created the Planetary Science Winter School to transform young scientists into mission and instrument designers. The Winter School is a program for postdoctoral planetary scientists to participate in a proposed mission or instrument, in order to gain experience in the world of engineering and instrument design. The program takes place in the Integrated Design Center.
