Dr. Ryan Park – Associate Editor

Ryan Park, supervisor of the Solar System Dynamics group at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and adjunct associate professor in the Department of Astronautical Engineering at USC Viterbi, works to measure orbital characteristics of all the objects in the solar system. These characteristics, including trajectory path, rotational axis, body shape and gravitational field, are determined from data collected by spacecraft and by ground observers.
