About Bruce A. McDonald

The author’s first novel was inspired by his research on Near Earth Objects now threatening Earth. While attending MIT, he consulted for NASA on the Mariner 9 mission to Mars. His work on quantum electron tunneling in transistors, published in IEEE Electron Devices, led NASA engineers to seek his help in avoiding power failure during the Mariner 9 mission to Mars. This research work led to flash memory devices now used in all electronic devices today, from cell phones to memory sticks.
