7) Although jobs were plentiful at the time, I had to compete against 11,000 other applicants to win

8) No one had achieved what I did, which ended in absolute failure but even more recognition.

Hi Arthur...

9) The financial cost was 3.2 billion dollars but the emotional cost that I was part of was immeasurable.

12) Although not as significant as some others, I can be considered a historical figure.

Christa McAuliffe?
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

You got it Chessmann. Teacher from New Hampshire and first civilian selected to go into space. Unfortunately she died tragically along with the rest of the crew during launch and never made it into space.

A tragic and shocking event that affected all of America, and which also had repercussions for me personally.

It would take me the better part of an hour, but from where I live I can walk to Christa McAuliffe Middle School. I was a humble college student at that point, just beginning to study Physics. It hit me very hard. It still does. Rest in Peace Christa.

My career in the performing arts spanned nearly 7 decades.

I was Knighted.

One performance in the earlier stages of my career elevated me to international fame, and the film served to re-ignite interest in this genre (romance, drama, comedy, etc...) of film - in part because this film did it differently than had been done before.

The wisdom of the Great Karnak prevails, haha, as I knew it would (Amon-Ra must have guided him to this topic!).

May the spirit of Im-Ho-Tep guide you as you provide the next subject! Smile

And the film referenced in the 3rd clue was "The Curse of Frankenstein" (1957)

I was born in NYC in 1904, and died in NJ in 1967 at the age of 62 of throat cancer (I was a lifelong chain smoker).

As a child, I completed both grades 3 & 4 in a single year, and skipped half of 8th grade.

I majored in chemistry in college, and went on to earn my PhD in physics at age 23, but I was also well versed in history, literature, and languages (of which I knew several, including Sanskrit).

Not Murrow.

During WW2, I was head of Los Alamos Laboratory while it was engaged in the Manhattan Project; I have therefore been referred to as a "father of the atomic bomb."

Upon witnessing the first atomic bomb test detonation at Trinity site in NM, I was reminded of a line from the Bhagavad-Gita (a Hindu scripture I read in its original Sanskrit): "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

After WW2, I became director of NJ's Institute for Advanced Study (which was also home to Albert Einstein), and I became increasingly concerned about the potential danger that scientific inventions could pose to humanity.
