Scott C. Moulzolf, 42, of Walnut Creek, CA, formerly of Bangor, ME, and Babbitt, MN, passed away unexpectedly on November 9, 2013. He worked as an aerospace engineer at the Space Sciences Lab, University of California Berkeley and was highly regarded for his contributions to NASA and DOE programs.
Scott was born July 12, 1971, in Ely MN to Marcel and Julie (Tadych) Moulzolf. He graduated from JFK High School in Babbitt, St. John’s University in Collegeville, MN, and earned his PhD in physics from the University of Maine where he was employed for several years as a research scientist.

Scott was personally responsible for the development and implementation of the first large, commercially available microchannel plate sealed tube sensor – the Planacon. Scott used these tubes in applications ranging from medical imaging and biomedical research to astronomical applications.
