An evening pause: From A Star is Born (1954).

Hat tip Edward Thelen.

My father ran a project with Chrysler in the late 60s to design (with Lou Epstein) a telescope suitable for orbiting. Made the cover of Sky and Telescope in 66, 67, or 68 (can’t remember when). When I was thinking of majors in college, it was Epstein who said not to major in astronomy, but rather math and physics, and do astronomy in grad school. I never got out of math until I then moved to computer science.
