Dr. Bruce Damer lead his team at DigitalSpace for a decade building 3D real time simulations under contract by NASA and several aerospace companies. His career led him into mission design with concept models for lunar ice core drillers, teleoperated lunar base construction and more recently, a space station experimental science bay aerogel collection concept to trap micrometeorites for mineral, volatiles and bio-reactive assays. By far his most extensive project with NASA was his design for a 2007 study for the then administrator Mike Griffin, on how to take constellation hardware, such as the Orion crew capsule, to targets beyond the moon, notably: asteroids, sometimes referred to as near earth objects or NEOs. Bruce worked with a team of civil servants drawn from several NASA centers and created one of the first plausible designs for a human crew to dock their spacecraft to a NEO, carry out surface EVA operations and return to the Earth. Other work Bruce is involved with includes work on origins of life with the Astrobiology community, curating one of the worlds largest historical computer collections in his DigiBarn Computer Museum, and running an artistic and organic farm with his wife Galen Brandt in the mountains of Northern California.
