Theodore von Kármán

I was born in Budapest, to a family of respected Jewish intellectuals. My father, Mór Kármán, was a philosopher and university professor, who received a nobleman’s title for his efforts in pedagogy. As a mechanical engineer, I am the reasearcher and developer of aerodynamics, and participated in the scientific preparations of NASA’s programs.
