F101 | Man Goes To The Moon | Hank Gold

Fridays 9:30 – 11:00 a.m.  | Four Sessions on Zoom - 4/5, 4/12, 4/19, 4/26

This will be a review of the US manned effort to get to the moon. The first session will be an overview of the development of rocketry. The second session will be a review of the Mercury Program: the US's effort to learn if humans could survive and function in space. The third session will be about the Gemini Program: how we learned to work in orbit, to rendezvous, orbit in formation, and dock with another spacecraft. The last session will be a review of the Apollo Program: how we got to the moon, how we learned to explore the moon, and how we learned to get off the moon and return to Earth safely.

As an undergraduate at Columbia, Hank Gold majored in biology. Gold earned his MD from Rush Medical College and did his surgery internship at BMC and his residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Albany Med.
