Focuses on the Apollo project, the technology involved and what the goals of the project are. Speech containing information regarding Crystler's role in the Saturn Project as contracted builders of the stages of three space vehicles. Speech delivered by Garland G. Buckner to the National Contract Management Association, Huntsville Chapter. Discusses the outdated procurement process, how its changing and how to track the trends of how its changing. Speech regarding the importance of developing and upgrading space ships and space technology. subject of the speech is the application of oxygen/hydrogen technology the 5-2 engine system. The document is a draft of the presentation "Chemistry in Space" by Harold Perkins, who explains the role of chemists in developing space launch vehicles. The document Includes references to charts and other presentation supports. The document is marked in the upper left hand corner "Huntsville High School Science Organization (the JETS), October 1962." The need for high reliability and great care in modern engineering is stressed. Disciplines to eliminate or decrease errors are described. College courses should interweave this approach into study projects. This address was given by James E. Webb, Administrator, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, at the Inventors' Congress and Space Symposium, Little Rock, Arkansas. This folder contains an invitation from Livingston University, a Speech, and a correspondence and an index of events. This is a speech given to fellow purchasing agent regarding purchasing and contracting. This paper presents a general review of major structural alloys that have been used in liquid rockets and space vehicles, the current state-of-the-art as applied to the Apollo launch vehicle systems, and discusses some materials currently under development for future requirements in vehicles for space exploration. Some aspects of the importance of corrosion resistant materials and suitable protective measures are discussed, as applied to both flight hardware and associated ground support equipment. This speech was given by Wernher von Braun, then the director of the Development Operations Division at the Army Ballistic Missile Agency, at the 1958 ASME-ARS Aviation Conference in Dallas, Texas. Von Braun, then the director of Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, delivered this speech to the legislature in 1961. In the speech, he emphasizes that Alabama must take advantage of its position in the aerospace industry and create a robust "academic and research environment" in Huntsville to attract businesses that "will give birth to major new industries throughout the state." He exhorts the legislature to fund the newly established University of Alabama Research Institute (now part of the University of Alabama in Huntsville), arguing that "the Institute will not only be self-sustaining, but will enrich the State both financially and culturally." The legislature later approved von Braun's request of $3 million for the Research Institute, enabling the purchase of 200 acres of land for the campus and the construction of the Institute in 1964. The speech includes copies of slides von Braun used during his presentation, including diagrams of Saturn and Nova rockets as well as a mockup of a Saturn rocket on the lawn of the state capitol in Montgomery.
