From Apollo 11 to ThunderStruck
by Robert Brand
It seems that an interview on my life in the space sector has been published. My good friend Nick Howes from the UK did the interview. It concentrates on my Apollo 11 work at the age of 17. No big deal, but it was pivotal in my life I guess and set the scene for what followed and ultimately the ThunderStruck spacecraft. The interview can be found in the magazine of the British Interplanetary Society.
Spaceflight Vol 56 No 12 – December 2014
The teaser for the interview says:
Nick Howes tells the intriguing story of a boy gripped by space and who went on to play an important part in the Apollo 11 story.
A little exchange from Facebook.
Robert Brand … and now building his own spacecraft easily capable of circumnavigating the moon and returning to land on earth. A funny and unexpected ending, given that 3 years ago I had no intention of doing anything like this!
