EE Times - Apollo 7/20/09Bob,

Just wanted you to know that a host of engineers, who worked on Apollo for many, many years, couldn't agree more with what you stated in the e-mail that you sent the amsat-bb today. 

All the Best,
Jim (N6MV) 

Dr. James R. La Frieda ( Ph.D. E.E.)

              The Eagle has landed.

            The July 20th special edition of digital-only EE Times is all about the Moon landing that took place 40 years ago and what it has meant to a generation of engineers of our time.

            Our Apollo special celebrates a team of engineers - not just astronauts - who took the audacious Apollo program to the moon, through in-depth interviews with Apollo flight controllers. 

            The special issue also offers virtual teardowns of the "Genesis Rock" and spacesuits, in addition to a teardown of Apollo electronics.

            Further, the special edition discusses "why we went to the moon," and lays out the lessons of Apollo, connecting the celebrated past with the future.

            The digital-only issue, packed with flash, video and music, will be  offered for the first time in a landscape format for easy viewing on your computer screen. It's a special issue you want to keep and add to your own Apollo memorabilia collection.

            There will be live Webinar on Apollo scheduled on Monday, July 27th. Join a live panel of Apollo engineers as they talk about applying the organizing principle of Apollo to solve today's problems. To register for the webinar, please click here.
