current employment.

Carl A. Rouse to earn his doctorate in particle physics at Cal Tech in 1956. A researcher at heart who avoided the classroom, while working in private industry he branched out into astrophysics and in his writings and lectures challenged mistaken hypotheses concerning intensely hot gases that constitute the sun and stars. Rouse devised a new method to measure the presence of helium in the sun's atmosphere and he posed his own theories on the matter.
