In this episode:
We chat with Lou Ramon, a self proclaimed "Old-Fashioned Spaceman" about his work with NASA.
Lou Ramon has been a "space cadet" his entire life. As a young boy, he had his own model plane "air force" hanging from his bedroom ceiling and he grew up reading and watching science fiction TV shows and movies. It's no wonder he ended up turning that passion into a lifelong career in the space industry.
He has been involved in nearly every U.S. human spaceflight program from Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Space Shuttle, the International Space Station to Orion. Among the many highlights for him was working as part of Apollo 11, alongside astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.
In this episode we get some fun tidbits from Lou about the Apollo 11 mission and you will learn about the candy smuggled into space that you won't read about in any book.
