William “Bill” H. Walker, 86
“Bill left ARAMCO to join Wernher Von Braun’s team of scientists and engineers in NASA in Huntsville, Ala. The team was then working on the design of the Saturn V rocket. While with NASA, Bill continued his education at the University of Alabama, eventually earning masters and doctoral degrees in math and engineering. Bill’s career at NASA saw him involved with all Saturn V launches, the Apollo moon missions, Hubble Space Telescope and the AstroLab array of X-ray telescopes that flew aboard the Space Shuttle on three different missions. Bill also served as a member of one of three, four-man teams that managed to keep the crippled Skylab in orbit until it was allowed to fall safely to earth. At the time of his retirement from NASA, Bill was working on the design of the navigation system for the X33 Space Craft, which was to have been the replacement for the Space Shuttle.”
