Talk:Gus Grissom

Return to "Gus Grissom" page.

First edit, I don't know how to cite that line, but here's the link to the book: http://books.google.com/books?id=LqZcSAM3nrYC&pg=PA271&lpg=PA271&dq=Gus+Grissom+terms+understandable+to+other+men&source=bl&ots=pd01SdQCKG&sig=8Ol_aZgLH2m29EoXDfIwKriAMhI&hl=en&ei=ge_sSs2IC5TuMca1hYMM&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=5&ved=0CBoQ6AEwBA#v=onepage&q=Gus%20Grissom%20terms%20understandable%20to%20other%20men&f=false


Apollo in perspective: spaceflight then and now By Jonathan Allday p271


I was watching "From the Earth to the Moon" and the actor representing Gus stated: "The conquest of space is worth the risk of life. Our god-given curiosity will force us to go there ourselves because, in the final analysis only man can fully evaluate the moon in terms understandable to other men." He said it apparently before a panel in Congress; is there any record/truth to this, or was is merely made up for television. It seems like a very powerful statement and I don't want to add it to the page without some sort of record to back it up. 150.156.212.217 - Ghostalker

This is already on the page. ~ Kalki (talk · contributions) 04:39, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
