Jonathan H. Ward

Jonathan H. Ward works to bring the thrill of the space program to life for the general public as a Solar System Ambassador for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and as a frequent speaker on space exploration topics to interest groups and at regional conferences. Ward’s previous two books, Rocket Ranch: The Nuts and Bolts of the Apollo Moon Program at Kennedy Space Center, and Countdown to a Moon Launch: Preparing Apollo for Its Historic Journey were published by Springer-Praxis in 2015. The books have been widely acclaimed in the space history community for their unique perspective—frequently in the everyday workers’ own words—on the heroic behind-the-scenes efforts needed to send Apollo to the Moon.
