Centre for Hypersonics

Name: Michael Creagh (MC Control)

From: The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia

Role/responsibility: Reaction control system (for re-orientation of SCRAMSPACE), simulations, flight coding.

Brief background relevant to this project: PhD in Spinning Vehicle Guidance and Control

Favourite space-related movie: Aliens

I like this sort of research because: It offers continuous challenges

On this project, I’m most looking forward to: Seeing the various sub-systems working together and the relieved reactions of those responsible for the design.

I think space exploration is . . . the single most ambitious thing that humankind can strive for.

When I’m not working on scramjets, I like to . . . Make various machines in my workshop.

A quote that inspires me: “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard…” - John F. Kennedy, 1962.
