Inside Apollo 11: A Westporter’s Story

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Westport resident and retired mechanical engineer, John E. Miller, played a vital role in this historic moment, leading the team that developed a full-scale simulation of the Apollo spacecraft guidance computer and navigation system for testing the on-board computer’s flight software. Miller will provide a personal perspective into the creativity and technological advances that put a man on the moon. John Miller joined the MIT Instrumentation Laboratory in 1959. He is the retired president and CEO of Intermetrics Inc. and is a resident of Westport Point.
