Personal Quote:

Strangely enough, I find that an extension course in engineering that I took at the University of Wisconsin has been a great aid in writing "Space Patrol" scripts. I've brushed up on my physics and astronomy to keep the dialogue legitimate, and, to date, we've never had a complaint from any scientist about error in our stories. - From a 1952 interview with the Los Angeles Times
