Interviewing Dr. George Mueller, head of manned spaceflight (post 37)

When we had first arrived at the Apollo 11 News Center we had an opportunity to sign up for individual interviews with NASA officials. We were able to land a 3:15 p.m. appointment for today with Dr. George Mueller, Associate Administrator for Manned Space Flight. We go back to the News Center to talk to him but find, to our chagrin, that he is not there. We rush to the Holiday Inn where he is talking to journalists in his hotel room, accompanied by a NASA PAO. Marv and I have a fascinating 20 minute personal interview with Dr. Mueller in which he lays out a bold future plan for space exploration beyond Apollo. I tape record the interview and realize immediately that it would make a perfect magazine article.
