Mr. Goldin will describe creative solutions to overcoming seemingly impossible scientific, technical, and public policy challenges.
Daniel Goldin was the longest-serving Administrator in NASA's history, presiding over the agency from 1992-2001. He currently serves as Chairman and CEO of the Intellisis Companies which focus on high-tech consulting and the development of biologically inspired technologies, including the next generation of computers and robots.
Goldin is credited with transforming NASA into a fiscally responsible and scientifically innovative agency. Among other accomplishments, he initiated the Origins Program to study how our solar system formed, how life on Earth began and to explore whether it exists elsewhere in the universe. He was also a vigorous proponent for increased exploration to determine if water and life may have ever existed elsewhere in our own solar system.
