Indian immigration to the United States: how the space race and Cold War gave rise to scientists and engineers
Produced by Mahi Palanisami
During the 1950s and '60s, the space race, the effects and fears of the Cold War, and the united leadership of India and the United States gave rise to a math and science-educated population in India. It changed U.S. immigration policy, as America welcomed India's brightest scientists and engineers to the United States. In this radio documentary, KFAI producer Mahi Palanisami explores Indian immigration to the United States to better understand her own family lineage and their drive to excel in science and engineering.
