A Geodesist and Uphold Wine from Ryme
*** A Geodesist ***
NYT defined the profession as: Someone who calculates the Earth's shape and size,
gravitational field and orientation in space over time. Who does this?
I did some research. Turns out Gladys Mae West did it and slammed it home!
Gladys Mae West (née Brown) (born 1930) is an American mathematician
known for her contributions to the mathematical modeling of the shape of the earth
and her work on the development of the satellite geodesy models that were eventually incorporated
into the Global Positioning System (GPS). West was inducted into the USAir Force Hall of Fame in 2018.
