It’s no wonder our favorite aerospace engineer has a chip on his shoulder the size of a boulder.
Howard Wolowitz is the product of an overbearing Jewish mother who still treats him like a child. Unlike his nerd buddies, he lacks a PhD, although he holds a master’s degree in engineering from MIT. He fancies himself a ladies’ man, but can’t see how his creepy overtures send the fairer sex running the other way.
From the hit TV series The Big Bang Theory, Howard redeems himself in his marriage to spitfire Bernadette and in his bromance with pal Raj Koothrappali. His work has been seminal, including his toilet design for the International Space Station. And don’t forget that Howie also speaks English, French, Mandarin, Russian, Arabic, Farsi and Klingon.
