About Me

George Adcock worked in the Apollo program for a number of years. At Marshall Spaceflight Center (MSC) in Huntsville, AL, he wrote Launch Procedures manuals for the Saturn I launch vehicle. He also worked with the Future Studies Branch, with which he wrote the original design report for the Lunar Roving Vehicle.

Later, at the Launch Operations Center (LOC) at Cape Canaveral, he wrote reports on the Crawler/Transporter for the Saturn V. He also worked on the Atlas/Centaur launch vehicle and the Surveyor lunar lander project.

Prior to his Apollo work, he was involved in the Air Force’s Discoverer program. This was, at the time, a Top Secret project that orbited a camera over the Soviet Union, and recovered the reentry capsule, with the film, in mid-air.
