He spoke here at NASA Goddard just recently about his experiences at Marshall Space Flight Center, in Huntsville, Alabama, during the Apollo era. I grew up in Huntsville during that time and my father also worked at Marshall so it was an especially interesting talk for me. I spoke briefly to him after his talk and now I'm even more pleased that I had that opportunity. This is a loss for all of us in the Space community.
