Michael Evans is a planetary scientist within the Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (ARES) Division at the Johnson Space Center. Evans' work with stable isotope research on meteorite carbonates help characterize the climate conditions on Mars. He leads science procedure development and testing for the BAA Gateway habitation module prototype evaluations. He has proposed science instruments for lunar exploration using superconductivity, aerogel, and RFID technologies. Primarily, Evans work allows him to focus on supporting exploration science for human and robotic missions to the Moon, Mars and other planetary bodies.
