Mr. Toups attained a Bachelor of Architecture Degree from the University of Houston. After a 15 year professional career in Architecture and Design, he received a Masters Degree in Space Architecture from the University of Houston, Sasakawa Institute for Space Architecture. In 1989 he joined the New Initiatives Office at NASA’s Johnson Space Center and contributed to numerous NASA studies including the 90 Day Study on Human Exploration of the Moon and Mars, First Lunar Outpost, and Access to Space. Mr. Toups is currently in NASA’s Exploration Mission Systems Office and is the lead for work related to future habitat concepts for future missions beyond Low Earth Orbit such as the moon and Mars.
