As I am getting ready to set out on my adventure I have started to think about some of the topics to discuss and have also been collecting ideas from people. So, if all goes according to plan and in no particular order, here are some of the topics I plan on covering:
- Children playing at the Jet Propulsion Lab, M.I.T Instrumention Lab and Draper Lab ( I was one of them)
- Some interesting adventures from the Polaris missile program
- The first NASA contract (hint, hint guess who won it?)
- Behind the scenes at Apollo – some errors and mishaps
- Astronauts – what some of them were really like
- Programming software in the NASA Apollo era
- My fathers first car (yes there is a story there)
- The current M.I.T curriculum (trust me, it’s a classic!)
- Lickly Corners. Yes there is such a place! (It’s where Lickley road meets Tamarack Rd. Duh!)
- Hardball squash
Looks like we are taking the northern route, so if anyone has suggestions on places to eat or things to see, I am all ears and stomach!
Here’s a picture of the young man I will be spending the next few days with.
