Rose Grad Serves Apollo Missions | Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology

I think I can safely say Rose didn’t teach me hardly anything that I used once I got to the space program because they weren’t teaching aerospace engineering, they weren’t teaching orbital dynamics. I went through the normal physics stuff, math and an electrical engineering. I didn’t like to learn stuff verbatim I like to derive it and on those four our finals I could derive answers to the problems and I loved them. That was the kind of thinking that you needed when you got into a field where there wasn’t anything written. Everything we were doing was new, so you had to kind of make your own way, you had to think you had to reason and Rose did a fantastic job teaching me how to do that.
