Amazing Manufacturing: the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing
Posted by Bert Maes on July 23, 2009
The 1969 NASA Apollo 11 “Lunar Module” contained “15 million parts“. All of them had “to perform their intended functions flawlessly under the most rigorous conditions” (www.assemblymag.com)
15 million parts… That is just great engineering and manufacturing…
As Austin Weber stated:
“In 40 years, perhaps we’ll look back on green energy with the same kind of awe and amazement as the first moon landing. I believe it’s time to take another “giant leap for mankind” and pursue bold new frontiers of energy, including batteries, fuel cells, geothermal, hydro, solar, wave and wind power”.
