Who was Jack Goldman?
Jacob "Jack" Goldman was an American physicist and former chief scientist of Xerox Corporation. He was also a faculty member at Carnegie Tech and directed the Ford Scientific Laboratory. He is especially notable for hiring physicist Dr. George Pake to create the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center, which produced many seminal ideas in modern computing.
Among the projects that Goldman worked on at Ford in the 1960s was the sodium–sulfur battery for electric cars. After narrowly surviving a fiery crash of his gasoline-powered Lincoln, Goldman quipped "I guess I proved gasoline is more dangerous than a sodium–sulfur battery."
