JOHN GOULD Art shows GE Company paving the way for Apollo 11 landing on the moon and moonwalk July 20, 1969. In a spectacular series of bi-monthly GE School and College Progress Posters from the early 1960’s artist John F. Gould has traced the historic events leading to the historic moon landing. When Neil Armstrong took that historic first step on the moon in 1969, it was boots made from GE silicone rubber. In all 37 different GE operations were involved in the mission. All manned flights through Apollo relied on GE radio command guidance equipment. The Space Division supplied overall quality control, systems engineering support, check-out equipment, Saturn launch vehicle test facilities and the ship-to satellite system that provided the first live color TV pictures of splash-down and recovery. Son, ROBERT GOULD and wife, LORETTA, residing in Chattanooga, TN, were quite thrilled with the connection between the artist and the historic moon landing.  The original GE posters are now part of the archive collection of Gould work at Syracuse University in New York.
