Event description

Description

How a single simple equation changed my life and led to Mission control during Apollo 11 and far beyond to the Space Shuttle, the Johnny Carson show, sports bras and designing spacesuits for Mars.

*****************************************

In his 50 year career Dr. Lawrence Kuznetz has had the good fortune to be a space suit designer, mission controller, spacecraft builder, life-science manager and Mars scientist with NASA and its contractors. He has taught at the University of Houston, the University of California at Berkeley, the International Space University at MIT and is currently a lecturer at UC Berkeley, designing spacesuits for Mars with eight teams of very excited students who hope to wear their designs on the red planet (see ME292A on twitter).

Dr. Kuznetz obtained his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Bioengineering from Columbia University and his Ph.D. from the University of California at Berkeley. In the wake of the Space Shuttle Columbia accident in 2003 he authored a white paper used by Congress that changed the face of NASA’s human research program. He holds eight U.S. patents, is a private pilot, and was the only non-celebrity guest ever invited back on consecutive nights on the Johnny Carson Tonight Show. In his spare time, he likes to play keyboard at piano bars.
