Curtis Cripe- CalState Polytechnic
Curtis Cripe received a Bachelor’s degree then a Master's degree in engineering from California State Polytechnic University. He worked on a number of projects there, and one of those first projects was the historic first Mars landing in the summer of 1976. That landing was executed by the first interplanetary space exploration craft known as the Viking 1. The findings from this expedition increased mankind’s understanding of the climatic conditions on the Red Planet. For the next six years, far beyond its original intended mission, the spacecraft sent back pictures of Mars across space back to earth so scientists could analyze and explore. Curtis Cripe was also involved in a highly important role as a supervisory overseeing a number of software projects for the company known as TRW, Inc. One of those clients was the Department of Defense.
