Pat Norris worked on the navigation systems that helped the
Apollo space missions land a man on the moon, and more
importantly get him home again!
He worked with NASA at a very exciting time when the USA and
USSR were in a battle to put the first human on the moon.
Pat came to METNS and told the children all about growing up in
Stillorgan , studying at UCD and his time working on the Apollo
missions.
Pat is the granduncle to Fia (6b) and Leila (3b).
The following link is to a video where Pat is interviewed about
his work with NASA.
