Abstract : The paper treats the possibility that the aerospace engineer could apply his skills to the solution of large-scale public problems. The two most serious problems seen are (1) the partial mismatch between the engineering disciplines needed in many domestic areas and those possessed by aerospace companies today and (2) the loss, when shifting to alien fields of endeavor, of the accumulated experience gained from the design, development, and manufacture of what amounts in a technological sense to progressively advanced models of similar end products.
