Sunday July 14th, T-2 days and counting
For the Apollo program, it all begins in the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB) where our own "Ray" worked on the 31st floor.
"Once we stacked the spacecraft in the VAB there was no work done on any of them until the Saturn V was on the Pad. I also spent several months at the Houston Space Center with the backup crews and I was on the LM Simulator Acceptance team so I got to fly the LM sim more than I wanted at times.
The damn thing never worked for two hours in a row, so they used people like me to act as Pilot to give feedback on what was working and what was not working. It was fun except when it was just boring work. A very unique job though."
