Robert Brand is a Special Guest for Apollo 11 GLXP Hangout
Not much to say, but to follow the link below and be part of the Apollo 11 special event for the Google Lunar X Prize Team Hangout.
I will be discussing my experiences wiring up the Apollo 11 gear in Sydney – not that this was an amazing event, but since I am part of a group building a mission to go to the moon with a Rover, it appears that I am about the only person in the GLXP with a connection to the Apollo 11 event. I have learned a lot from others in the OTC family and from research. Hopefully I will do an adequate job. I was 17 years old back on the day of the landing. Paul Davies, another trainee tech at the time, also wired up some gear, but i have not heard from him since his days at OTC.
I bumped into Buzz Aldrin 2 months ago when I was presenting a talk at Spacefest in Pasadena. I have learned a lot about the missions by talking with these guys.
