Interplanetary Podcast #130 – David Chudwin – Apollo 11

This week we welcome The Interplanetary Podcast’s episode: #130 – David Chudwin – Apollo 11.

As a 19-year-old college journalist, author David Chudwin covered the Apollo 11 launch from Florida in July 1969. Chudwin was the only journalist with official NASA press credentials representing the college press and had extraordinary access to the astronauts, rocket scientists, launch pads, rockets, and control centers.

2019 will be the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11.

Divided into three parts, this book provides: the author’s account of covering the first landing on the Moon in 1969; lessons learned from the Apollo program and their relevance to future space activities; and our future in space including new rockets, space stations, and trips back to the Moon and to Mars.
