Neil Munch has had a life-long interest in space, advanced physics, cosmology, and an insatiable curiosity about most everything. He stressed the importance of assumptions in all scientific endeavor and has influenced an entire generation of critical thinkers around the world.

- 1948-1956: advanced engineering projects in rocket propulsion, space travel, information systems, ordnance systems at several companies.
- 1956-1986: joined General Electric Space Division as scientific contributor and manager of space sciences groups up to 45 people.

Currently retired from GE. Some of the rocket engines he designed were successfully flown are now on display at Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Wash. DC. President of Munch Engineering Corp. (Incorporated 1984) Published aver 100 papers questioning modern physics some of which are also in referred journals.
