Dr. Timothy A. (Tim, ScienceTim) Livengood, Ph.D.

Center for Research in Earth and Space Science and Technology, Goddard Space Flight Center.

Tim Livengood is a planetary scientist who measures the composition, temperature, and wind velocity in planet atmospheres. Most recently, he has been using the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter to investigate where water may be hidden on the Moon, using super-duper high resolution infrared spectroscopy to determine how much atmosphere Mars used to have, and exploring energetic processes in Jupiter's aurora. He was a co-investigator of NASA’s EPOXI mission, and was the education and public outreach team leader for EPOCh. Tim graduated from Towson Senior High School in 1980 and from Washington University in St. Louis in 1984. During his college summers, he killed rats and cell cultures in an underground laboratory using a linear accelerator, just like a proper mad scientist. He finished a doctorate in physics and astronomy at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore in 1992, measuring properties of aurora on the planet Jupiter in ultraviolet light. He moved to Goddard Space Flight Center in 1991 and has worked there ever since. He is also an active storyteller and will tell you about it, amusingly and at length. He has not directly killed any rats since 1984.
