America’s Greatest Projects and Their Engineers VIII
Author: Dominic Perrotta
This course describes the seemingly impossible mission of the Apollo Program – “landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth” by the end of the 1960s. It focuses on several of the key challenges including the need to design components and systems which did not yet exist, the space race with the Soviet Union, and accidents that occurred during the program.
The Apollo program, also known as Project Apollo, was the third United States human spaceflight program carried out by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). At its zenith in the mid-1960’s, more than 400,000 Americans were involved in the Apollo program. A total of twenty-seven space pioneers traveled to the Moon, but only twelve astronauts actually set foot on the lunar surface. Placing a man on the Moon was arguably the greatest physical achievement ever performed by mankind. The effort, which had taken place over a fifteen-year period, was the result of the concerted efforts of American politicians, project leaders, engineers, suppliers, contractors, and astronauts.
