Visionary physicist, engineer, scientist, researcher and inventor Scott M. Tyson has dedicated most of his 30-year career to probing the far-reaching mysteries of the universe, boldly venturing where few men dare to tread and forever changing how people view the world around them. And he has 15 patents in space technology to prove it. After graduating from Johns Hopkins University with an engineering degree, he began his trailblazing career at IBM's VLSI Laboratory, Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories and Westinghouse's Advanced Technology Laboratory.
Responsible for the implementation of new microelectronics approaches, Tyson also served as an advisor to the Office of the Secretary of Defense on space computing technology development and planning, as well as for congressional delegations to accelerate the advancement of meaningful and effective space electronic solutions. His remarkable ability to integrate seemingly disparate concepts and insights into meaningful and practical solutions and contexts ultimately led to a second career as an author.
