Garden City, New York, USA. May 23, 2019. ANDREW CHAIKIN, best-selling author of "A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts" is in the JetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium at the Cradle of Aviation Museum, and before his talk starts says what his favorite quote is:
Bob Gilruth [Dr. Robert R. Gilruth] who ran the Space Center in Houston - said to his chief designer once, several years after the end of Apollo, he said, this guy's name was Max Faget [Maxime Allen Faget], and he said, "Max, some day people are going to try to go back to the moon, and they're going to find out how hard it really is."
Event was part of CAM's celebration of 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11.
