Not being happy with the security offered by a life in research, I went to medical school and am now an anesthesiologist. My primary interests continue to be astronomy and the space program. I am lucky enough to be able to have a collection of meteorites (including a specimen from the moon) and flown objects from the Apollo moon landings.
I am convinced the Apollo project and our beginning exploration of the planets, is the most significant event of the 20th century, and will be the one event of our time recognized by our descendents thousands of years from now. We have been lucky to be alive at this time.
