    Gruener Chat Host John Gruener's Biography:
    John Gruener currently serves as a flight systems engineer at NASA's Johnson Space Center. He joined Johnson Space Center in May 1986, working on the Space Shuttle and Space Station programs. After a year and a half, he moved into an area more suited to his interests: the exploration of the Moon and Mars. Since then, he has conducted work in several different capacities: as a rocket scientist designing missions to the Moon and Mars, a space farmer growing of plants in advanced life support systems, and a planetary scientist studying the rocks and soils on Mars.

    After graduating from Spring Woods High School in Houston, Texas, Gruener earned a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from University of Texas. He received his M.S. in Physical Science (with an emphasis in planetary geology) at the University of Houston-Clear Lake.
