The Story Book

We are all storytellers. We live in a network of stories. There isn't a stronger connection between people than storytelling

Jimmy Neil Smith - Author

We all have a treasury of stories to share of our days in aerospace. This is the begining of that collection as a legacy for those to come and continue our journey to the stars.

Spaceship Factory


The late 50’s and early 60’s in southern California was like a “Cosmic Camelot”.
The air was filled with “can do” and a future of “Rocket Fever”. We had captured the German rocket technology and would make it better, we had the promise of
Hollywood Sci Fi for a better tomorrow and JFK promised this nation the Moon. We had the promise of a future and the commitment of a nation to go where no
man had gone before.
