Awards: World-known expert in hot plasma physics and energy transport by radiation.

Actually, I am most proud of becoming a world-known expert in hot plasma physics and radiation transport. This happened over a time of about 3 decades. It started in 1972, when after a consultation with my research director, Edward Teller, I embraced on a project that became very important. I did a number of publications, both classified and unclassified in open journals, like Physical Review. Strangely, the Soviet and later Russian researchers paid a lot of attention to my work, but until 1990 or so they were also restricted to make contact with me. In 1994, in Garching Germany there was a joint international meeting with a number of Russian participants and lots of interesting things got uncovered regarding the past. After that I became quite good friends with some of my Russian counterparts. They were first rate scientists and very pleasant gentlemen.
