American branch of the Piccard family

I have a special thought during this flight from Phoenix to Tulsa, ‪Oklahoma‬ for the American branch of the Piccard family founded by my grandfather's twin brother, Jean Piccard, in the 30s.

Jean was also a professor of chemistry who explored the stratosphere with his wife.
He inspired the character, Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek, a figurine of whom is flying with me in the cockpit today.
