Tracking Down JoAnn Morgan, a Semi-Hidden Figure of U.S. Space History

In a famous photo taken in Firing Room No. 1 of Kennedy Space Center on July 16, 1969, the day of Apollo 11’s launch, the consoles are populated by dozens of short-haired men in white shirts and skinny black ties, some of them in lab coats, many of them wearing pocket pen protectors. There is only one woman at a console, in a dark dress, her hand to her chin. Who is she? I thought of this question again while writing about Apollo 11, the forthcoming documentary by Todd Douglas Miller that uses newly unearthed wide-screen film footage from the National Archives to tell the story of the first moon landing.

During the mission’s launch phase, a pan across the firing room reveals this same very woman. Her name, I learned, is JoAnn Morgan. Morgan retired from NASA in 2003, after a career whose inception more or less coincided with the agency’s own, in 1958. Vanity Fair: What was your position at the time of Apollo 11?

High Fidelity Polar Elevation. Earth’s poles have historically been some of the most poorly mapped regions on the planet.

High Fidelity Polar Elevation

With heightened awareness, and an overall sense of urgency around global climate change, there is a need for high quality mapping data to facilitate a deeper understanding of the impact with regard to Earth’s polar regions. Sparked by President Obama’s 2015 Executive Order, and thanks to the University of Minnesota’s Polar Geospatial Center (PGC), along with their partners and sponsors, we now have high resolution topographic models of the Arctic region and the entire continent of Antarctica. From monitoring and modeling the impacts of climate change over time, to field logistics, scientists, government officials, and the broader user community can leverage these great elevation maps and layers via the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World. Arctic DEM Esri has been providing this data to users since 2016.

One of my earliest memories is of lying in my bunk bed in my PJs, staring at the world map on the wall of the room I shared with my brother (that's me in the middle, my grandmother on the left).

As live performances were no longer part of The Beatles' plans, they needed to consider different approaches to the promotion of their new music. In the mid 1960s, one of the most effective and revolutionary 'new media' in the UK were pirate radio stations. From 1964 onwards, a number of offshore pirate radio stations were set up to play pop music to a youthful nation of baby-boomers.
