going up? (May, 1954)


going up?

Every man has his own ceiling. What’s yours? If you’re going up—and far… if you are willing to match your ability against the toughest engineering challenge… if your sights are high, and you’ll stake the future on your belief in you… then there may be a place for you here.

No plush inducements or resort accommodations. Just the chance to join one of the greatest creative engineering organizations in the whole new world of spaceborne systems development.

If it’s only a job you want, the woods are full of them. But if you are one of the few who are destined to go far in this industry, you’d be wise to take an engineer’s-eye view of the mindpower and the facilities you’ll be working with.

    What has the Martin company done recently besides merging with Lockheed?

    Kosh- they build the Atlas V rockets that put things like the X-37 up, don’t they?

    Gosh, something hard, tall and pointy going into a round, dark circle.

    I’m glad there’s no such thing as subliminal advertising.

    @ Charlene – Just be glad they weren’t recruiting for the Submarine service. 😉

    Altlas was originally a Convair design, which modern derivatives still fly and are in production. Martin’s rocket was the Titan, which is no longer in production.
