James S. Sarp (B.S., Physics, 1964)

                                                       

Currently, I am working for United Space Alliance supporting NASA doing astronaut training.

I got married in 1972 and have one son. My activities outside of work include: Chairman of Worship Technology (lights, videos, and sound) at a local church, and working at a local food pantry driving trucks for pick-up and delivery. From 1967 to 1971 I was an officer in USAF. My favorite assignment was at USAP Global Weather. Currently, I am working for United Space Alliance supporting NASA doing astronaut training. As a student, I had a part-time job in the physics laboratory working for Dr. James Earl flying high-altitude balloons for research using cloud chambers. My favorite professor was John Winckler. My favorite course was a lecture/lab sequence studying the physics of vacuum tubes and transistors.
