Suggestions for future systems scientists[edit]

A listing is created here below to suggest future systems scientists and subscripts for the systems science portal.

Feel free to add systems scientists to future systems scientists in the listing. If the queue is too long for your liking, just push an earlier systems scientist to the end or rearrange as you see fit.

I suggest we eventually try for variation in time period and subject matter. -Mdd 12:28, 11 September 2007 (UTC)

Stephen Grossberg[edit]

Would Stephen Grossberg and Gail Carpenter be considered a systems scientists? They worked on modeling neural behavior architecture (adaptive resonance theory, which has implication in describing complex learning systems. 128.206.160.63 (talk) 18:19, 10 August 2009 (UTC), oops, I mean Rhetth (talk) 18:20, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

They might..!? But I don't think these are the "prototype" systems scientists, this portal wants to introduce. Anyway. These introductions are limited to articles that are in a good shape, and preferable contain a picture. Those two articles need a lot of work. -- Marcel Douwe Dekker (talk) 21:21, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Listing[edit]

J.F. Shea

Joseph Francis Shea (September 5, 1926February 14, 1999) was an aerospace engineer and NASA manager. As head of the Apollo Spacecraft Program Office, Shea played a key role in shaping the course of the Apollo program, helping to lead NASA to the decision in favor of lunar orbit rendezvous and supporting "all up" testing of the Saturn V rocket.

Shea's speciality was systems engineering: a new type of engineering in the 1950s that focused on the management and integration of large-scale projects, turning the work of engineers and contractors into one functioning whole. He played a significant role in the Titan I project; as George Mueller writes, "he contributed a considerable amount of engineering innovation and project management skill and was directly responsible for the successful development of this pioneering guidance system...."
