Stephen G. Ungar

EO-1 Scientist Emeritus - NASA/GSFC & Senior Research Scientist, USRA

 I will share with you my Journey from a somewhat problematic childhood, spanning World War 2, through early formative years leading to my six decades of association with NASA.  Come learn why, although race, religion and ethnicity play a role in my identity, I self-identify myself as a Physicist.  NASA has served as a safe harbor for those of us afflicted with this mental condition and provides us with an opportunity to make meaningful contributions to society.  I will also describe my good fortune in serving as the initial Mission Scientist for EO-1, “NASA’s Science and Technology Pathfinder to the 21st Century.”
