Local Rocket Scientist is "Discovered"

Discover magazine has named Diane L. Linne, an aerospace engineer in NASA Glenn Research Center's Turbomachinery and Propulsion Systems Division, one of the nation's 20 most innovative researchers and scientists under age 40. The list was compiled for a commemorative 20th Anniversary Issue that hits newsstands now.

Linne was noted for her work in advanced fuels development and characterization for planetary exploration. Her research focuses on using carbon monoxide and oxygen made from the carbon dioxide in the Martian atmosphere as propellants to return from Mars. She is currently investigating the new technology of ceramic rocket engines.
