In July 1969, my Father and I were fortunate to
receive a tour of the Kennedy Space Center
3 weeks before the launch of Apollo 11.
In this photo I am joined by our NASA host to

In July 1970, I had the opportunity to meet with
Wernher von Braun in his office at NASA Headquarters
in Washington, DC. Dr. von Braun was kind enough
to take the time to critique the design I had presented
at a local science fair on a space station re-using
Gemini and Apollo hardware.
