DESIGNER - ARCHITECT - ENGINEER: AEROSPACE DEPLOYMENT SYSTEMS
CREATOR - DEVELOPER: "EARTHSTAR", THE WORLD'S FIRST PROMOTIONAL SATELLITE
- Scott has developed and worked on numerous aerospace deployment and launch systems including: EARTHSTAR. EARTHSTAR was the first orbital visual communications and promotional satellite designed to be Earth-visible to the ordinary person and then burn up in an atmospheric fireworks show. A massive mylar inflatable was designed using old military rockets for boost. The launch company launched America's first private commercial rocket. Scott has launched numerous balloons to near-space and designed a MARS landing system for the first MARS Lander. NASA first rejected his airbag landing system for being 'too exotic' but, later, NASA discovered that the airbag landing system was the only one that worked. The airbags were, indeed, the system that finally delivered the first lander to MARS. Scott also won federal patents over NASA's earlier patents, for electronic ion propulsion technology.
