The Collins Story - Connecting the Moon to the Earth: Moon Talk

The Collins Story - Connecting the Moon to the Earth: Moon Talk

00:35:13

In the days before personal computers, before the Internet and the worldwide web connected us to global information, before smartphones connected us to one another, before GPS guided our journeys. Before this technology was a part of everyday life, American astronauts explored new frontiers in space and on the moon. A half century ago, men on board the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo space capsules talked to earth, navigated in space and to the moon and back, and exchanged critical data with mission control. How was this accomplished five decades ago? By the ingenuity and dedication of a company founded in the heartland of America - The Collins Radio Company in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

"Moon Talk", the second chapter (but first to be completed) of a three-part series, tells the little-known story of the people who designed the space communication systems and how they did it. These systems were technical feats that had never been done before, and played a crucial role in America's race to be first to land a man on the moon.
