Thank you!

A wonderful reminder that are no constraints on the human mind, no walls around the human spirit, and no barriers to our progress except those we ourselves erect.

This time 13 is a lucky number!

If you have discovered this podcast, 13 is now definitely your lucky number.

It is an exceptionally well produced series that is in the narrated and delivered in a very comfortable easy to follow “non-nerdy” style that is enhanced by authentic audio from the Apollo space craft and mission control.

The interviews with some of the personnel that made this “mission possible”, provide us with some of the behind the scenes situations and stories that tell us just how good these very young engineers and computer programmers etc. were at doing their jobs and how calm they remained when having to make split second decisions that ensured the safety of the astronauts and the success of the mission.

The Eagle has definitely landed with this podcast! BZ to everyone involved.
