Richard Stark (BS '57, MS '58)

Richard Stark (BS '57, MS '58) is now retired after a long career with the Aerospace Corporation. He finds inspiration hosting tours at the Space Shuttle Endeavor exhibit in Exposition Park, L.A. "We graduated the same year as the launch of Sputnik," Stark notes. "The span of our careers mirrored that of the space age, including its impact on science and technology. [Today's technology] is a long way from manually soldering transistors on printed circuit boards."
