Integrated Modeling and Simulation Manager, NASA JPL
Steve Wall came to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 1976 for the 30-day Viking Mission, the first landing on Mars. Forty-three years later, he is in JPL’s Chief Engineer’s Office, where he does research on new ways to do engineering design. Along the way, Steve has been part of Viking, Magellan (Venus) and Cassini (Saturn) explorations of our Solar System, and several missions to explore our own planet, Earth. He is also an instructor in Systems Engineering at Caltech’s Center for Technology and Management Education. With degrees in Optical Engineering and Physics, Steve considers himself half engineer and half scientist; his highest accomplishment may have been getting those two professions to occasionally agree with each other.
