Apollo 13 50th Anniversary Commemoration

Online Zoom conference “luncheon” Aero Alumni meeting

Wednesday, April 15, 2020, 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The LA-LV Section of AIAA are preparing a Zoom-distributed event to provide an engineering perspective of the development of the Apollo systems. Any Apollo engineers who may be able and interested are invited to prepare and submit a talk or presentation of about 5 minutes on something they consider significant from their association with Apollo.

The above subject is deliberately open to interpretation. Apollo was probably the most significant project most of these engineers worked on. Concepts & systems developed thru it have affected the world in untold ways. They are invited to provide their own perspective, large or small.

Due to the COVID-19 “Safer at Home” orders, the event will be conducted remotely on the Zoom.us conferencing service. NASA events with the crew are occurring near the recovery date (4/17/70) anniversary, at various eastern locations.

If someone you know worked on the Apollo program, please talk to them about it. If you or they are interested in presenting a personal story, please reply to gary.moir@ingenuir.com.

April X, 1970, Swigert replaced Ken Mattingly

April 11, 1970, launch & trans-lunar injection

April 13, 1970, explosion of oxygen tank(s)

April 14, 1970, free return flight around moon

April 15, 1970, Swigert’s tax extension.

April 17, 1970, splashdown in the Pacific

May, 1970, astronauts visited Space Park

Contacts: Gary Moir 310-378-7076, or gary.moir@ingenuir.com

Many of you helped develop the Saturn V boosters, the LMDE and guidance systems and a few helped develop the emergency operational procedures in real-time.

Astronauts James Lovell, Fred Haise, & Ken Swigert came to TRW-Space Park (NGC) after the mission to personally express their appreciation to the ATD team that helped them come home safely.
