The National Space Society vision is people living and working in space

Edwin R. Jones

National Space Society Board of Governors

Edwin Jones’ interest in space was solidified when, after receiving a BSEE from the University of Arizona in 1959, he worked at Sperry Flight Systems simulating the re-entry of the Dyna Soar spacecraft. The Dyna Soar was a vehicle far ahead of its time with a mission requiring extensive cross range maneuverability. He later participated in the simulation and design of control systems for various proposed Aerospace Planes.

In 1967 he received a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University. Leaving aerospace, he entered the field of design automation of integrated circuits. After a period at Fairchild Semiconductor he was part of the founding team at LSI Logic, a pioneer application-specific integrated circuit company.

Beyond his engineering interest, Dr. Jones has had a lifelong interest in science fiction, with a library of over 4600 hardbound volumes.
