Moonandback Interview With Jesco von Puttkamer, part 4 – A World View Sea Change

In part 4 of his interview at ISDC, Jesco von Puttkamer talks about being assigned to NASA HQ in Washington in 1974, helming the Long Range Planning office – tasked with looking into Space industrialization and how to go back to the Moon and to Mars. How we created Skylab and the first Soviet-U.S. space ship docking in 1975. How politics delayed true international cooperation for the next 20 years and how we eventually learned to build a space station from visits to Mir. How Space Station Freedom became the ISS — a truly international partnership. And how today’s Space Station functions and the participants’ world views are changed by our international cooperation in space.
