I see someone from Lockheed-Martin held their breath long enough to read this blog. I used to work for a company that spun off of Martin's biosciences division. After the Army, it was the best, most interesting, most fun job I've ever had, but sadly the area where I worked was only a short-term income producer. Once the other end of the company got off the ground it was bye, bye.
My name is on a "patent disclosure" that the company filed for a closed-system bioreactor. I came up with a way to keep it from pulling a vacuum and imploding as it burned off oxygen but it never got as far as an actual patent. I guess that was my 15 minutes of relative obscurity.
