Once again my environment for learning was perfect. As an RA, I wrote programs for Dr. Gurnett and set up a whole variety of other standard computer analysis programs that would read data from space missions such as IMP-6, IMP-8, and Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 to be executed on the Univac computers. Then, when my computer operator shift started, I would go to work running all the jobs that were set up to be executed on the 4 o'clock to midnight shift. On many occasions the midnight to 8 a.m. operator would call in sick, so I would work that shift too. By around 4 a.m. I would be done and I would then begin work on my own programs and run them on the computers. By 6 a.m. it was time to pull the microfilm output and develop it; having everyone's microfilm ready by the start of the 8 a.m. shift. When the 8 a.m. operator came in, I just went to class. In 1976, as a graduate student, I had published my first paper on the angular distribution of Auroral Kilometric Radiation. It utilized data from IMP-6, IMP-8, and was stored on 125 data tapes that would take nearly eight hours of computer time to run. No one could touch this type of analysis and the paper was well received and highly cited in technical papers for years.
