APOLLO 11 – It was 46 years ago today man landed on the moon. America was in a heated “Race to Space” with Russia and Dick Holl was charged by NASA with broadcasting the historic moment on worldwide television.
“I was so caught up in the job. I had a job to do. Everyone was dedicated. And I looked up and was informed that our broadcast was going on behind the Iron Curtain in Russia. It was the first Western broadcast since the Iron Curtain came down. And thats when it hit me. The importance and significance of what I was involved in.” Holl reflects.
“I’ve talked to astronauts and others in NASA and we really didn’t know what to do with our lives afterwards. Where do you go from here?” Holl states.
