Description

David Crisp, senior research scientist at NASA, recounted his adventures, from going from a physics education major who had a paper on Venus winds published by Carl Sagan to a doctoral student at Princeton to helping fix Hubble. He described working for years on the Orbiting Carbon Observatory, only to see it plunge into the Indian Ocean after a rocket failure, and the elation of getting to try again after funding was restored.
