Howard, herself one of the first and only women to have ever worked on the Saturn V as an aerospace engineer, takes this famous story down from the heavens to the peons in the pits.

Howard tells us what it was like for the 400,000 people on the ground who together built the largest and most powerful rocket in history. Though the astronauts themselves were, of course, important to the mission, this story looks beyond the glitz and glamour of the stars and honors the men and women who made this vast program a reality.
