Micah Johnson earned a B.S. with honors in Astronomy/Astrophysics from Indiana University in 1995, graduating with Highest Distinction.
He was selected for a Summer 1994 internship at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, TX. The research project involved programming a simulation of lithospheric extension and applying it to interpret the formation of extensional features in the Tharsis region of Mars.
Also as an undergraduate, Micah participated in a research project involving the visualization of three-dimensional protostellar models given varied initial perturbations, which culminated in a display presentation at the June 1995 meeting of the American Astronomical Society.
For a period of about two years after graduation from college, he was employed by the AlliedSignal Technical Services Corporation, operating under a NASA contract. There he participated in software development and orbital analysis of mission coverage needs for TDRSS and ground station loading studies.
His primary resposibilities were the development and support of the x-ray imaging software, XIMAGE.
