Memoirs of a Hayseed Physicist by Peter Martel

Part 1:
In The Beginning:
In the early morning of October fourth, 1957, a most amazing thing occurred. The Soviets launched Sputnik. As I lay in bed, listening to the news release, my mind was astounded by this wondrous feat. Subsequently, to my great surprise, this one single event was to have a profound effect on my life. It would open doors for me that, perhaps, I would never have been able to venture through.Screen Shot 2017-07-02 at 12.54.31 PM
