    Thanks for that link. Houbolt was really key in making the moon landing feasible in the 60s.

    There is an internal NASA document about Dr. Houbolt's saga titled, "Enchanted Rendezvous". It's long, technical, and a great read. It used to be on the NASA document site but it's not there any more. I'll find it and post it. (It took me a few hours to read.)

    Very lightly and briefly dramatized, if memory serves, in the HBO series From the Earth to the Moon.
