Elkhart Memorial students had a chance this morning to do a Google Hangout with a software engineer for NASA, Dr. Shawn Gano. Shawn graduated from Niles High School and earned his Ph. D from the University of Notre Dame. He works with NASA software engineers to maintain Mission Control systems and Orion spacecraft systems from Houston, TX.
The Hangout was recorded and you can watch (or listen) to the entirety below. The first half is Shawn’s background and some of the projects he’s worked on with NASA. The second half is Q&A using pre-submitted questions as well as questions from students.
