On the card, Dr. Rocks is joined by Islanders legend, Butch Goring and his son Burton Rocks, New York Times best-selling author and sports attorney. This card will be available for $4.99 (+ shipping) under the Game Dated Moments® section of UpperDeckEpack.com on Thursday, April 22, 2021, at 9am PST and will be available for sale for one week.
Dr. Rocks received his Masters of Science In chemistry from Purdue University, and his D.Sc (Doctor of Science) from Technische Hochschule Vienna, where he wrote his doctoral thesis in German in the field of analytical chemistry separating metal atoms in semi-aqueous solutions. Rocks authored the acclaimed book, The Energy Crisis in 1972, and he influenced the creation of the U.S. Dept of Energy. His research career has spanned from analytical chemistry to sports biochemistry to novel antiviral research.
Dr. Rocks created WeatherStationMoon, a unique concept calling for the establishment of an unmanned weather station on the moon to accurately measure climate change. The project aims to measure the earth’s temperature in totality, and in part, and the earth’s cloud cover dynamics.
