    Computers were also involved, we had them ever since the Brits gave them to the CIA at the end of WW2

    Yeah, but most of the design was done with slide rules.

    Computers were used for long, simple but repetitive mathematical tasks like calculating trajectories and such.

    No computers were still used for certian aspects of the design process.

    A computer was most certainly did.

    But I understand the point. The Soviet’s questioned our dick size, and we spent money no questions asked to compensate. I hate to say it but Apollo was Uncle Sam’s Hummer H1.

    Maybe, but a race to the moon is way better then proxy wars in Asia.

    So this is what we’re asking our adolescents these days? “Why aren’t you a rocket scientist?”

    Last Dad and Kid team that did that got arrested…
    There was a time where you could launch your own miniatures and learn the trade slowly…just like “those guys” did wink wink…think V1 V2….

    My guess is that in 1969 there were millions of teens who could not work a slide-rule, much less design an LEM.

    On the flip side, millions of teens pass advanced math exams every year, even in the US.

    And just because the kid can’t do math doesn’t mean he’s not the best Archeologist in history.

    Math teaches logical thinking, so most advanced science careers would be out of their range…unless you’re still thinking of Mr Jones.

    Seriously… 15 minutes? My friends kids do homework all night, Hell when I was in school I did homework until 2am on more than one occasion.
