Who is that Banjo-toting man?
It's none other than Dr. Werner Von Braun. Wernher Magnus Maximilian Freiherr von Braun (March 23, 1912 – June 16, 1977) pictured with his wife, Maria, at the first annual picnic of the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville in 1969 -- celebrating the moon landing! This is from the Marshall Space Flight Center employee newsletter, and a far cry from the stoic look Dr. Von Braun usually put forth in public.
Come to Hoole on Tuesday to see more space-y stuff!
