Emeritus Aerospace Team Members

This is where you can find the autobiographies of people who have been part of Aerospace Team Online but for one reason or another are no longer participating.

If you would like to write to any of the people listed above to share your appreciation for their writings, please send an E-mail to Susan Lee (slee@mail.arc.nasa.gov). She will forward your greetings on. Please do not expect a personal reply from the individual since we've got them too busy writing journals and answering questions.

Note: The people listed above are those who agreed to participate in Aerospace Team Online. There are many more people involved in aeronautics research at NASA.
