Dr. Mark Carpenter, Dr. Travis Fisher, and Prof. Frankel the day of Travis' Ph.D. defense in July 2012. Mark came up all the way from NASA Langley to participate in Travis' defense. Mark co-advised Travis while he spent almost 2 years as a co-op at NASA during his Ph.D. Mark and Prof. Frankel know each other over 20 years when Prof. Frankel spent two summers at NASA Langley during his MS at NCSU. They both look pretty good, eh?
