Presentation by Connor Bray

PRANDTL-M: Potential Mars Airplane

Connor Bray, May General Meeting Speaker

Connor Bray is an active DAS member and currently an undergrad at the Colorado School of Mines, where he will complete his BS in Engineering Physics this December before starting an MS in Applied Physics. Over the past year, Connor has  worked with the Electroweak Interactions Group on his senior design project: a design study of a large scale HPGe array for the FRIB Decay Station. The FRIB will characterize nuclear properties at the “frontiers” of the chart of nuclides where new phenomena are expected.

Before he graduates, Connor will have completed two internships at NASA. The first was last summer, where he was the Flight Vehicle Performance Analysis Lead for the Preliminary Research Aerodynamic Design to Land on Mars (PRANDTL-M) project at NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center. Additionally, this summer Connor has an internship at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center to work with the All-Sky Medium-Energy Gamma-ray Observatory (AMEGO) project. Connor has had a passion for space exploration for as long as he can remember, and he hopes to someday work at NASA.
