NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine Discusses Space Fandom With Me!

NASA is a rare government agency with a massive fan base! After a recent presentation at NASA headquarters in Washington, DC, I had the honor of discussing the amazing NASA fanocracy with NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. We discussed the Apollo lunar program, robotic missions to Mars, how we might get back to the moon, and much more.

How NASA Sold the Science and Glamour of Space Travel

NASA used marketing strategies to gain support for its space missions, leading up to the moment Apollo 11 astronauts landed on the moon on July 20, 1969 (50 years ago today). But soon after, the American people’s doubts returned. I’m featured in this really great (high production value) mini-documentary by Retro Report. I hope you will take 6 minutes to check it out. I believe the marketing aspects of the Apollo missions were as important as the spacecraft and what better day to learn about this than the 50th.

Jack King, the voice of Apollo “liftoff! we have liftoff!”

There are three iconic voices related to the Apollo lunar program: 1) President John F. Kennedy’s challenge to America “We choose to go to the moon!”, 2) Neil Armstrong’s first words as he stepped foot lunar surface: “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind” and 3) Jack King’s countdown to the launch of the Saturn V rocket that carried humans to the moon. We know a great deal about Kennedy and Armstrong, but what about Jack King? On this, the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch I share a little about Jack.

IBM, Omega, and Hasselblad Celebrate Apollo 11 fiftieth Anniversary with Exclusive Content

Apollo 11, the first lunar landing, was fifty years ago this month. It was the most audacious adventure humans have ever accomplished and deserves celebration. I’m particularly interested in how the contractors who worked on the project in the 1960s are marking the milestone, so we will look at three companies: IBM, Hasselblad, and Omega.

PBS American Experience Film I Served as Consulting Producer Premieres Today!

I’m super excited that after many years of hard work, the first part of Chasing the Moon, a three-part mini-series by Robert Stone, premieres today on PBS American Experience. Parts two and three come Tuesday and Wednesday. The idea for Chasing the Moon came when Robert read my book Marketing the Moon: The Selling of the Apollo Lunar Program which I co-wrote with Rich Jurek.
