... A highlight of our trip was talking with one of the volunteer docents Lucian "Luke" Talley who was an electrical engineer with IBM who worked on the guidance system of the Saturn V rocket. He was able to tell us a lot about the program and the workings and has some interesting anecdotes about his time with the program. There are about 60 volunteers that rotate through seek one out and talk to them! Worth the trip.
