Laurence A.(Larry) Feldman served as Senior Staff Member of Los Alamos National Laboratory. Mr. Feldman has spent over 40 years working in the field of aerospace engineering and computer science. While serving in the Air Force at a number of government laboratories including the Air Force Weapons Laboratory, Air Force Rocket Propulsion Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore Laboratory and the Air Force Armament Laboratory, he developed computer software to analyze solid rocket design and trajectory performance, magnetohydrodynamics (energy research), and computational fluid dynamics (aerodynamics). Simultaneously, he developed supporting computer graphics, employing 2-D, 3-D, animation, and current multimedia technology. During his career, he went from the old punch tape and keypunch cards to the world's fastest supercomputers and high-speed graphics devices. After retiring from the Air Force Reserves as a Lt. Colonel, he did contract work including generating a database model of Edwards Air Force Base which was deployed aboard the Space Shuttle to aid rehearsal of approach and landing operations prior to descent. He founded a software company "Creative Visual Software" which developed a 3-D geometric modeler and scientific visualization. He played Lacrosse at the University of Pennsylvania and briefly at the University of California, Berkeley on their club team. Prior to that he worked as a 3-D software architect for Intel Corporation working on 3-D animation/simulation for desktop and laptop computers of the future. Before that, he worked for a British game company developing a "3-D Engine" for use in games developed for the Nintendo, Sega, and PC computers. He serves as Executive Director of LaxPower.com. He has attended the University of Pennsylvania, University of Oklahoma, University of Southern California, University of California, Berkeley, Auburn University PhD) and Stanford University (Post-doctorate). He has received five awards for his work, including first prize in an IBM supercomputing contest, two Cray Research Supercomputer "Gigaflop" awards, an Autodesk First Prize in Scientific Graphics, and first prize in MicroCad Magazine's Engineering Graphics Contest. He played Lacrosse at the University of Pennsylvania where he lettered twice and briefly at the University of California, Berkeley on their club team. He currently is the author of Laxbytes.com. Mr. feldman still consults for Laxpower.
