AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, February 20, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Space Commerce Institute welcomes Evelyn Miralles, former Chief Principal Engineering at NASA. Miralles’ star career in the space industry, technology and passion for youth and STEM education, will be fundamental to the development and implementation of the changes the institute has embraced for the space industry.
The Institute is a non-profit organization founded in 2020, with the aim of changing the space industry and making it more accessible to young people. We are a think tank that promotes critical and free thinking, a forum of free minds where all are welcome to discuss the role of young people in space and how young people will inherit and lead the space industry. Evelyn is the first Fellow of 2022 and joins a college of eight current expert members.
During his tenure at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, Miralles served as Chief Principal Engineer in the Engineering Division, leading a highly technical, visible and critical astronaut training facility supporting R&D for space missions. His computer acumen and vision helped advance “human space exploration” by developing innovative immersive graphical applications that successfully supported the Space Shuttle, the International Space Station, and the creation of the Commercial Crew program. She led the development of state-of-the-art Dynamic Onboard Ubiquitous Graphics (DOUG) software, the first virtual reality (VR) ready training tool used to prepare astronauts for dangerous excursions in microgravity.
“We are deeply honored to welcome Miralles into our Institute. The presence of Miralles will be fundamental in fomenting concrete actions to pass the baton of space leadership to young people,” said Chris Stott, co-founder of ISC. “We gather in the Institute great minds for the great work that awaits us. We are truly delighted to have Miralles join our team of experts,” added Michael Potter, co-founder of ISC.
Miralles received the prestigious “Flight Safety Award” from NASA’s elite Astronaut Crew Office. She also received the University of Houston Clear Lake Distinguished Alumna Award in 2016, among other national and international honors. Miralles holds a Bachelor of Science in Computer Graphics (CS) from Lamar University, a Bachelor of Computer Systems (CIS), and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the University of Houston Clear Lake. .
