Married to Mary Lee Pieper. Ruth Hansen, and his father, Dr. William Newman, are both residents of San Diego. Wylie Bernard Pieper, reside in Houston, Texas. Graduated from La Jolla High School, San Diego, California in 1974; received a bachelor of arts degree in physics from Dartmouth College in 1978, a master of arts degree and a doctorate in physics from Rice University in 1982 and 1984, respectively. After graduating from Rice University in 1984, Dr.
Newman did an additional year of post-doctoral work at Rice. Newman was appointed as adjunct professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rice University. When selected for the astronaut program he was working as a simulation supervisor responsible for a team of instructors conducting flight controller training.
Newman began astronaut training in July 1990. His technical assignments since then include: While still assigned to the Astronaut Office Dr. Newman has also worked in various assignments at NASA. In March 2006, Dr. Newman left NASA in July 2008 to accept a position as Professor, Space Systems at NPS to continue his involvement in teaching and research, with an emphasis on using very small satellites in hands-on education and for focused research projects of national interest.
A veteran of four space flights, Dr. Newman has logged over 43 days in space, including six spacewalks totaling 43 hours and 13 minutes. Newman was responsible for the operation of the SPAS, was the backup operator for the RMS, and on flight day five conducted a seven-hour, five-minute spacewalk with Carl Walz.
The extravehicular activity EVA tested tools and techniques for use on future missions. In addition to working with numerous secondary payloads and medical test objectives, the crew successfully tested a Global Positioning System GPS receiver to determine real-time Shuttle positions and velocities and completed a test routing Orbiter data to on-board laptop computers.
STS-51 made 158 orbits of the Earth, traveling 4. Also on board was the International Extreme Ultraviolet Hitchhiker payload, numerous secondary payloads, and medical experiments. The mission was accomplished in 171 Earth orbits, traveling 4. During the twelve-day mission the Unity module was mated with Zarya module. Newman performed three spacewalks with Jerry Ross, totaling 21 hours, 22 minutes.
The primary objective of the spacewalks was to connect external power and data umbilicals between Zarya and Unity. The mission was accomplished in 185 orbits of the Earth, traveling 4.
STS-109 Columbia March 1-12, 2002. The crew of STS-109 successfully upgraded the Hubble Space Telescope with new solar arrays, a new power control unit, and a new camera, and also installed a cooler to reactivate an old infrared camera. This work was accomplished during a total of five spacewalks in five consecutive days. Newman performed two spacewalks with crewmate Mike Massimino, totaling 14 hours and 46 minutes.
During the first of these spacewalks, Newman and Massimino replaced an old solar array and a reaction wheel assembly with new units.
STS-109 orbited the Earth 165 times, traveling 3.
