The co­founder of semi­con­duc­tor gi­ant In­tel is also the name­sake of Moore’s Law, his pre­dic­tion more than 50 years ago that com­puter pro­cess­ing power would dou­ble ev­ery year. Moore and his wife, Betty, are pro­lific phi­lan­thropists.

While a stu­dent at UC Berke­ley, Moore de­signed a rocket en­gine as a mem­ber of the Rocket So­ci­ety.
