083 – How Apollo Flew to the Moon | omega tau science & engineering podcast

I, too, bought the book as a result of finding this episode. I was mad on Apollo as a kid and really appreciate the chance to learn the ins and outs of how they did it, because the TV shows at the time, though very good, didn’t go into such detail.

There was something really exciting coming home from school and having tea watching a programme called “Live from the Moon”

I remember watching the hammer and feather experiment (Apollo 15?) and then the presenter threw a hammer and feather in the studio, all in black and white but all amazing. I, too, hope you can do more Apollo stuff,

David Woods is great, the Scottish accent is most fitting for an engineering programme !

Also, remembering the Apollo engineer you had on one podcast, would be great to have more as these guys have so much history to talk about and won’t be around forever- probably get fed up with all the basic questions “what did it feel like… etc” .. Obviously,

a podcast featuring Gene Kranz would be amazing as would Charlie Duke (but I guess they are pretty busy). I only mention because you do it so well….
