Certificate of Excellence

Nice to be Certifiably Excellent

Nice to be Certifiably Excellent

Last week I was awarded another Certificate of Excellence at NASA for building and leading the Dynamic Tensegrity Robotics Lab.  I’m quite touched by the recognition!  Despite the fact that it feels to me like I’m just chugging along, working hard every day, with small incremental progress,  I must be doing something right, since I’m getting multiple awards every year now.

Here is the current list since I returned to NASA in 2011 from being CTO of Apisphere Inc.
