Dr. Feng Hsu is a U.S. expert with several decades of experience in the field of Risk Analysis, Safety and Mission Assurance (SMA) assessment for complex engineering systems. Formerly a staff research engineer at world renowned Brookhaven National Laboratory, Dr. Hsu has worked extensively on reliability, probabilistic risk assessment (PRA) and management theory and methodology research for nuclear reactor safety since the 1980s. He became senior staff engineer/scientist and joined NASA’s SAIC team in the Shuttle & Exploration Analysis Department at Johnson Space Center in Houston in 2000. Dr. Hsu was the lead engineering analyst and project manager working as technical expert in the space center on NASA’s key program areas, such as PRA, SMA for the Space Shuttle, International Space Station as well as the risk-informed design assessment for the new generation space launch and crew exploration vehicle systems. Dr. Hsu has published extensively and co-authored several books by CG Publishing and Aerospace Technology Working Group. For his work, Dr. Hsu has also won numerous research and service awards from NASA, among others. Dr. Hsu is now senior vice president of Systems Engineering and Risk Management for Space Energy and is dedicated to the development of a space solar power satellite demo project for delivering safe, effective, environmentally friendly and economically feasible space solar energy to help save the planet.
With more than 90 books published and worldwide recognition for his expertise as technical advisor and leading expert of Risk and Safety Assessment and Management at several NASA centers and Brookhaven National Lab, Dr. Feng Hsu recently shared his assessment of the risks in getting this new civilian space travel agency off to a safe, successful start.
Dr Hsu is collaborating with a new space travel agency in order to assist in personalized risk assessment to new prospective future space participants and to provide his experience to aid in the advancement of scientific knowledge helpful to not only the new space tourism industry but for all mankind and the future of commercial space flight.
We are pleased to have the collaboration from Dr. Hsu on risk evaluation of our new space travel agency and space tourism: Dr. Hsu adds a level of expertise and contacts that will help our company and also help the entire private space travel agency business to take a more realistic view and achieve some of its objectives much sooner. With his support inyernational markets will be able to be reached.
Agreeing with Dr. Hsu’s assessment on the focus of safety as the only real prime consideration, all the new space companies including Virgin Galactic, XCOR, Blue Origin, SpaceX, Armadillo, and Masten are preparing to launch their commercial space travel agency business endeavors as soon as possible.
With NASA planning to discontinue its space shuttle program in June 2011, it will be up to the private sector to manage the development of human-carrying vehicles to enter space.
