One needs many hands of five fingers each to identify the people who
deserve most credit for Apollo: My own list has to include not only
Gottschalk's Gilruth, Von Braun, Webb and LBJ/JFK (inseparable), but George
Low, Stark Draper, Sam Phillips, George Mueller, Joe Shea, Max Faget, Chris
Kraft, Kurt Debus, Eberhard Rees, Arthur Rudolph, John Houbolt, Tom Kelly,
Joe Gavin, Lee Atwood, Bob Seamans, Gene Kranz, Rocco Petrone, Caldwell
Johnson, Owen Maynard, Walt Williams, Harrison Storms and--why not--Neal
Armstrong! Apologies to others who deserve to be on the list but did not
come to mind. Jim Harford
