About Myron Fletcher, Boeing Rocket Propulsion Engineer
Myron is a Boeing early career employee from Tuskegee University who holds a Bachelors of Science in Aerospace Science Engineering with a Minor in Physics (2013). He was selected for his passion for human space exploration, and ambitious research projects already under his belt during internships and assistantships. As a student, he worked on the fabrication of carbon/epoxy, developed simulations to model solar sail trajectories and control systems for deep space missions, performed wind tunnel tests on how different shapes affected drag, studied development of a biodegradable rocket for a NASA standard payload, and researched and designed a useable UAV for scientific research. At Boeing he now uses those experiences as a rocket design and propulsion engineer. Myron is responsible for the design and development of the Debris Screen A.K.A “debris catcher” for the Boeing Space Launch System core stage propulsion team and the Propellant Feed Filter and Hydrazine Filter for the Exploration Upper Stage – which are all critical components of the systems. Myron is also pursuing his Master of Science Engineering Management Degree from Duke.
