Disruptive Technologies from Space- featuring NASA Goddard CTO Peter Hughes GEX04
Syndicate 708, a Deep Tech Incubator run by Ellen Chang C88, WG 98, invites Wharton So Cal to a webinar about Earth Science innovations.
Radical technologies are key causal agents of disruption. Only new concepts, out of-the-box thinking and breakthrough technologies have the chance to bring up new momentum into technology development that create breakthrough opportunities to make the world a better place to be.
Benefits like lighter materials, higher performance levels and decreased production and integration costs are only some examples for possible outcomes. Disruptive technologies can change the layout of any market and change any sector in a way that the present dominant technologies may become obsolete.
NASA Goddard has been working on and with many disruptive technologies to solve some of Earth Science’s biggest challenges. CTO Peter Hughes will be leading a talk with us on his journey to use and leverage these technologies for discovery and advancing science.
Peter M. Hughes, Chief Technologist for the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), is responsible for planning, coordinating, and managing advanced technology-development programs at Goddard. Among his many responsibilities, Mr. Hughes advises Center leadership on strategies that leverage technology investments to advance NASA's ambitious science and exploration goals. Mr. Hughes, who represents Goddard on NASA's new Center Technology Council, also manages the Center's Internal Research and Development program and various technology-transfer programs. Mr. Hughes received a B.S. in Computer Science from the College of William and Mary, an M.S. in Computer Science from Johns Hopkins University, and an M.S. in Management Technology from the University of Pennsylvania's Executive Masters for Technology Management program.
