Post Re: Heinlein's education
I feel quite certain that Heinlein never claimed to be a physicist. He claimed only formal training in and knowledge of engineering - but not a degree, since Annapolis did not offer such in his era, and was self-taught in higher mathematics, astronomics, ballistics, principles of physics, etc. He was of course widely read and doubtless knew more about some subjects than many folks with formal degrees.
