I WAS A TEENAGE SPACE REPORTER - From Apollo 11 To Our Future in Space

Hosted by Mike Dawson (Songwriter, Composer, STEAM Advocate)

Today’s guest is David Chudwin. He’s the author of the book “I WAS A TEENAGE SPACE REPORTER “ (Published by LID Publishing)

This book is primarily about David’s experiences as a young newspaper reporter covering the historic Apollo 11 space mission for the University of Michigan paper The Michigan Daily. His informal style takes the reader back to the days when daily reality was focused on space missions to the Earth’s Moon. He was the only NASA credentialed college newspaper reporter at Cape Canaveral during the Moonshot and his book I WAS A TEENAGE SPACE REPORTER expertly chronicles his magical experiences as a 19 year old journalist.

"At the start of 16 July 1969, just after midnight, I boarded the Apollo 11 capsule to go through a several hundred item 'switch list' to assure the ship was ready for crew ingress. I was very excited to be a part of this historic mission leading to our first landing on the Moon. David's book gives one a great perspective of the excitement and experience of someone outside the Apollo Program!" - FRED HAISE, Astronaut, Apollo 11 Backup and Apollo 13 Lunar Module Pilot
