|This book if terrific. Kranz gives you a detailed insight into just how hard the task was, and just how close they came to disaster on many occasions. |
His job was to get his controllers organised so well that any crisis that came along could be dealt with as quickly and accurately as possible.
This man worked on the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo projects, culminating in the Apollo 11 moon landing itself, and the unbelievable saving of the Apollo 13 crew after their spacecraft blew up on the way to the moon.
This book ties in with my article here about how the USA could make itself look great again. Guys like Kranz must still be there, ready and able to do these fantastic things, for goodness sake why not let them have a go for Mars, what a glorious enterprise that would potentially be.
Highly recommended, 9/10, you could buy it here.
