In 1966, Chappelle started a job with NASA in support of the space program’s manned space flight operations. As an exobiologist, Chappelle initially studied organisms before becoming a remote sensing scientist. Chappelle worked for NASA and then the Goddard Space Center until 2001. Along the way, he established 14 patents that have retained their usefulness in modern science.
