Before This Decade is Out--

Personal Reflections On The Apollo Program
This collection of oral histories of the Saturn/Apollo program recounts the unique adventure of the lunar landing programme as witnessed by some of the political leaders, engineers, scientists and astronauts who made it such a success. It includes recollections from James Webb, the NASA administrator whose political connections to Washington extended back to the New Deal of the 1930s; rocket pioneer and architect of the Saturn V rocket Wernher von Braun; the resolute Robert Gilruth, director of the Houston centre; the engineering iconoclast Maxime Faget, whose designs of spacecraft made flights to the moon possible; and astronauts such as Harrison Schmitt and Charles Duke.
