Hungarian-born engineer Peter Goldmark immigrated to the U.S. in 1933 and worked for Columbia Broadcasting where he demonstrated the first commercial color-television system. He later developed the long-playing (LP) microgroove disc, revolutionizing the recording industry. In 1950 he developed a scanning system that eventually allowed the U.S. Lunar spacecraft to relay photographs from the Moon.
