In the mid-1980s, one out of five research and development scientists and engineers was employed in the aerospace industry. That portion fell to 3.3% in 2007, the latest year's data available from the National Science Foundation. Likewise, the numbers of R&D scientists and engineers has fallen from nearly 145,000 in 1986 to a low of 19,100 in 2002 before recovering. Scientists and engineers hurdle the technological challenges and bring awe-inspiring new products and innovations to life.
