Meet four men who have intimate knowledge of the Apollo program as we look back at the first moon landing with Apollo 11.
Jim Chandler worked with General Electric’s Apollo Support Department on equipment to test the Lunar Excursion Module. Lew DeWitt helped build real-time visual simulators of the Command and Service Modules and the Lunar Lander for NASA. Jim Kotas worked at Cape Canaveral on the GE Acceptance Checkout Equipment during Apollo missions 7 to 11. Larry Kelly was manager of manufacturing for GE during Apollo missions. He was awarded the Apolloneer award in 1968 and was elected Mayor of Daytona Beach in 1974, serving for 19 consecutive years. A Q&A session followed the panel discussion.
