On the next Fresh Air, as the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing approaches, Charles Fishman talks with Dave Davies about how unprepared America was when the space race began, and how much of the Apollo program was improvised – from hand-wired computers to space suits designed by Playtex. Fishman’s new book is One Giant Leap. Join us.
Fresh Air can be heard weekdays at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM (and again at 12:00 am Tuesday through Friday)! / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org / Listen on the FREE KRCB Mobile App which you can download from the App Store & Google Play
