Jim Frankenfield - Science & Engineering Pages

These pages are part of my personal non-commercial website which goes back to the early 1990's. I infrequently try to update this site, mostly by checking links and most recently (10/2022) by making it at least marginally responsive (phone friendly). I have a number of other business and non-profit sites including an academic site for tutoring. I offer math tutoring, physics tutoring and engineering tutoring. I also offer complete courses.

Rocket Science

I worked as a "rocket scientist" at Morton Thiokol in Utah in the 1980's, thus my interest in the subject. A bit more background on that experience can be found on the main Rocket Science page, which also some links.

Science (and Academic) Humor

A few comics, scanned cartoons and jokes collected from here and there.

Science and Engineering Related Photos (General Interest)

These are some images which have come my way at some point, usually via e-mail that was forwarded all over the place. I've saved them here because I feel they are of general interest but science related.

The Employment Situation and the State of Science

This page has a small collection of materials on the job situation from the 1990's. Some things have improved, some have gotten worse, and some have not really changed. On a broader scale the economy went through changes, particularly following 2000 and even more so in 2008. The pendulum may now (2022) be swinging back the other way and these issues from the 1990's may become more pronounced once again. Time will tell.

Some Fun Stuff

Snow and Ice - Links and Articles

This is really my own primary area of interest within science. Sometimes people have e-mailed me links to technical articles on these subjects; this page serves as a shared bookmark list for these links.
