Fred Zito was not at Dowling in the late sixties although he did earn his Ed.D. at Dowling in 2002. No, during the sixties Fred was working for NASA as an aerospace engineer. Stationed at Grumman on Long Island, Fred was working on the navigation and guidance systems for the lunar landing module.
In this 30-minute interview, Fred draws from his front row seat of the space race to recount just how daunting and complex a task NASA and its partners faced. Our additional audio of the Apollo 11 take off and lunar landing is courtesy of NASA.
