He provides support to the NGC/Boeing Crew Exploration Vehicle proposal effort and the JSC-requested Radiation Trade studies. Mr. Atwell was a chair of the AIAA Life Science and Systems Technical Committee and is chair of the AIAA Life Sciences and Space Processing Technical Committee and a member of the AIAA Public Policy Technical Committee. Mr. Atwell is the recipient of the Astronaut’s Silver Snoopy Award, Rockwell International Space Systems Division (now Boeing) President’s Award, and numerous NASA, NATO, and AIAA awards and commendations. He received the 2001 Special Space Flight Achievement Award from JSC for his scientific support, modeling efforts, and space radiation analyses of the Phantom Torso Experiment (1998) and the International Space Station Increment 2 (2001). Mr. Atwell has authored more than 200 technical and scientific publications. He has an M.S. and a B.S. in physics/mathematics from Indiana State University and was a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Florida.
