My Johnson Space Center Visit (1980)

I was a rookie high-tech-engineer at a Cleveland Ohio company from 1979 to 1980. Our company worked on several projects in collaboration with International Companies in those days. I used to boast a USAF cleared classified badge to work on US Government and NASA projects then.

I got the opportunity to take a delegation from mainland China to Johnson Space Center (JSC) at Houston Texas. That China delegation had visited our company’s R&D Center then located at Cleveland Ohio.

Posting a few pictures of myself with the China delegation at JSC Houston Texas.

May be an image of 6 people and people standing

Visit to the Johnson Space Center (JSC) and NASA Mission Control located there are still green in my memory.
