Today's episode is a special 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing episode with Rod Pyle, a bonafide space geek. Rod is a space historian and futurist who has written 15 mass market books on space and another 3 books for internal use at NASA. His four latest books have all been published this year, which makes him one of the most accomplished authors today.
In this episode Rod and I talk about the moment he knew he would work in the space industry and how he worked his way into positions that led him to work with NASA in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Johnson Space Center.
We also explore the future of space travel and the space industry. Rod is hopeful that international collaboration on space exploration will help with international relations.
Rod is an amazing storyteller and believe me, he has stories to tell.
Today would be a great day to share this episode as America celebrates the accomplishments of NASA and the Apollo 11 mission.
