IAmA 93 year old who co-wrote the original radar manual during WWII and also worked at JPL for many years on satellites. AMA!
My great-grandson will be typing in the responses. Proof: http://imgur.com/F2LLL
Edit: I am going to eat lunch now, but I will try to return later today.
Edit: I am back!
Edit: I am going to take a break from answering questions for a while.
Edit: This AMA is not over, I am going to continue answering more questions whenever I have time!
Final Edit: Great-grandson here. My great-grandfather passed away February 7, 2013. This AMA was one of the last things he ever did before his health seriously went into decline, and the last thing I ever did with him. Thank you to everybody who asked him questions. The AMA is now closed.
