Michael Feld and Ronald McNair at MIT, 1980s

[MIT physics professor Michael Feld] had an amazing track record of mentoring African-American scientists, including astronaut Ronald McNair [PhD '77], who received his PhD under Michael’s supervision. In turn, Ron became Michael’s karate master...the true master is the one who helps others to achieve their best.
