studebaker hoch: MBradyIs he the guy who came up with the idea of a multistage rocket, LEM, etc to land on the moon? This was completely opposite Von Braun's idea of landing on the moon vertically with a huge rocket (like in the old movies). Eventually Von Braun realized that the guy was correct.John Houbolt advocated Lunar Orbit Rendezvous for Apollo.This NOVA special on the Apollo program covers the choice of mission mode in detail.

mark12A: I liked STTMP. I thought the plot was smart, plausible and logical. A real engineer's version of Trek. Especially the Director's Cut. The pajama uniforms were bland, but completely logical considering the ship environment was well controlled.
