Descrizione prodotto


"What was life like growing up on the Lower East Side of NYC during the Great Depression? Can you imagine it? For adults, of course, it was harsh; for a young boy like me, born in 1924, it was not as bad as you think. I actually had fun playing sports and games you probably never heard of. Learn about them. My vivid recollection paints a broad view of the Lower East Side for you to see what it was like: social activity, sports activity, bread lines, patriotism, politics, professional sports interest—compare it to your experiences. I was fortunate not to be hungry for food but hungry to experience the wonders of our country. Learn how I broke out of the Lower East Side shell.
A college education was hardly a goal among the youth in my community, but I made it at a young age, graduating from the City College of NY at twenty. I had five industrial engineering jobs, hardly the experience that would prepare me to manage NASA satellites operations. It did not, but by a quirk, I became operations manager of a series of NASA weather satellites called Nimbus, research satellites that provided many benefits to society you would be interested in learning about. So why not also learn how satellites operate? I describe that in simple terms.
Of course this book is my life story—my story of raising a family, , having a productive career, paying back to society through volunteerism while keeping close to Judaism , and enjoying my senior years while still being productive at consulting work.

5.0 su 5 stelle Interesting book for any engineer or prospective engineer 8 marzo 2017
Di Harold - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Not a lot of engineers who worked on anything have taken the trouble to publish a personal account as Ralph has done, so, while perhaps not some great work of literature, this is a very interesting book, particularly for any engineer whether or not they had anything to do with NASA or the aerospace industry. While Ralph's NYC Lower East Side start might be a little unusual, his career parallels that of many engineers in one way or another, and I find it always interesting to understand how other people, engineers in particular, got started and how their career developed. Ralph has taken the trouble to write it all down, and I greatly enjoyed his work.

I did not know Ralph, personally, but I remember watching him buzz around the Nimbus ground station at the Goddard Space Flight Center when everyone came together to support a launch or operations.
