The best thing about the Miami Physics Department was the teaching staff and my fellow classmates.  After getting a BA (1958) and an MS (1960) in Physics at Miami, I went on to get a PhD in astronomy at U of California, Berkeley.   I joined Computer Sciences Corp in 1976, and worked on attitude determination for several spacecraft on contracts with Goddard Space Flight Center.  I continued to work for CSC at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore supporting the construction of the Guide Star Catalog used by the Hubble, other satellites, ground-based astronomers, and even amateur astronomers.  I now live with my wife in a retirement community near Baltimore.
