Tonight on Inquiry, we talk rocket science, as well as satellite science and research launched from the Space Shuttle with writer ROBERT A. HUFFMAN, son of retired scientist ROBERT E. HUFFMAN, Ph.D. His long career stretched from the Nixon administration to the Bush administration, during which time he worked on numerous projects including some associated with the Strategic Defense Initiative, “Star Wars”. His new posthumously published memoir recounts what it was like to launch experiments into space all the while dealing with organizational politics, government funding and the tensions of the Cold War. His new book is ADVENTURES OF A STAR WARRIOR: COLD WAR ROCKET SCIENCE ON THE SPACE FRONTIER.

Berklee's mission is to educate, train, and develop students to excel in music as a career.

Developing the musicianship of all our students is the foundation of our curriculum. We believe that the lessons and qualities derived from that work—the self-discipline needed for excellence, the empathy required of music making and the openness and curiosity essential to creativity—are critical to achievement in any pursuit, musical or otherwise.
