Meet GregI can point to three events that led me to pursue a career in physics: First, as a child, I recall vividly watching the Apollo lunar landings. I sat spellbound by the events on TV and wanted to understand what I was witnessing. Second, in middle school, I worked on science fair projects with my dad. My father was an electrician and having every imaginable piece of electronic equipment spread out over the kitchen table as we worked on these projects created in me, a fascination with science and engineering. Last, while in high school, I watched the first run of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage (I had Sagan for class seven years later).
