I left the Aerospace industry in the seventies. I was an Apollo propellent systems chemist with a specialization in hypergolics.

When Apollo 18, 19 and 20 were cancelled, many of us found ourselves without a job, and with the Shuttle years away, many of us were without a career as well.

Many decades and many, many miles later I signed on to twitter and found a wonderful group of active members, workers and enthusiasts in the spaceflight community.

Through your tweets and blogs, I feel connected once again to the love of my life, the dreams of my youth, when a few of us answered John F. Kennedy’s clarion call to reach for the moon and the stars.
