Tony’s job title is Head of Planetary Science Formulation which means he leads teams coming up with ideas for the next two decades of exploring our solar system. Tony hold a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and a Ph.D. in Astrophysics, both from the University of Manchester in England. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engi-neers for his work on radar observations from space and is a 35 year veteran at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. 

Tony was inspired by Neal Armstrong and his predecessors at JPL. explained that his job is to look at new mis-sions. He treated us to a slide show that will be attached to this newsletter. You could hear a pin drop during his presentation. It was fascinating and I am sure we will be asking him back to update us on what is happening in our solar system.
