Two Memories Stand Out

I was part of the Space Race
by Kenneth J.

I started with the Martin Company in January 1958 as a senior technician in the static test area (Complex B, D-3), and I left Martin Marietta in December 1977 as a senior engineer. Two things stand out in my memory. First, while assigned to D-3, during a side-by-side test firing, we destroyed the first stage and test stand. Secondly, in 1974, while working a special contract for NASA Headquarters on the Skylab program, I was selected as an honoree to attend the Skylab 4 launch.
