UH grad Walheim continues to plot course for the stars

Rex Walheim, a 1989 graduate of the Industrial Engineering Masters program at UH, is now at the private company Axiom Space after retiring from NASA. The agency noted that he spent almost 36 years in government service, 36 days in space, and 36 hours on spacewalks.

When Rex Walheim first enrolled at the University of Houston's Cullen College of Engineering's Masters program in Industrial Engineering in the 1980s, his goals were literally sky high. At the time, he was a flight controller at the Johnson Space Center and a lieutenant in the United States Air Force, and he hadn't yet flown a vessel himself.
