Dr Rendezvous Mk II

Martin Preston

With apologies to Buzz Aldrin, David Baker absolutely nailed the mechanics of orbital rendezvous with his fascinating talk at the British Interplanetary Society this evening. I wasn’t there – I gather the place was packed – but thanks to the BIS’s new live streaming service I was able to watch the whole thing on my desktop and take snaps along the way. How David manages to hold all that information in his head is beyond me, but it just goes to show what a remarkable achievement the Apollo programme was. Well done David! Can’t wait for your next talk! MP
