  • The oral histories on this website are the transcripts from audio-recorded, personal interviews with many who pioneered outer space and the Moon, and with those who continue the excitement of space exploration. To preserve the integrity of the audio record, the texts are presented  with limited revisions and thus reflect the   candid conversational style of the oral history format. Brackets   and ellipses indicate where the text has been annotated or edited for clarity. The date of each interview  is noted on   the first page.
