History: May 2019 Archives

Watching Apollo 11 with NASA Historian Bill Barry

"What lessons can we draw from the Apollo program to apply to challenges we face now, such as climate change?

One of the big triumphs of the Apollo program was that we managed to make it all come together and work. Going to the moon in less than 10 years seemed pretty impossible to a lot of people at the time, but we managed to make it happen. To a great extent, I think the lesson that comes out of Apollo is how to manage a big project and that big projects can be done."

Keith's note: "How to manage a big project"? The NASA historian has clearly not read the history of large programs Like the ISS, Webb Space Telescope - or SLS. I am not sure that any lessons were learned from Apollo. Quite the opposite. Just sayin'.
