Oh, and as I said, my father was a rocket scientist and I grew up with the principles of aerospace engineering all around me. In fact, when I was a little kid I held the sample scoop that is currently atttached to the Viking II on Mars. So I do know just a little bit more than the average person.
Books: not just for use as doorstops anymore!
My husband has a BFA degree and I've been married to him for 27 years.
Does this mean that I now possess the same degree?
Reading books about physics doesn't qualify one as a ROCKET SCIENTIST, either.
What is the Viking II on Mars?
