NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration Employee Review

Did you work with Homer Hickman?

May 27, 2015 on Reddit

1) Did you work with Homer Hickman? What was he like? 2) What was it like to have to help the Apollo 13 mission? 3) Does NASA and/or you believe that one day we will make contact with alien races? Thanks so much for your time and service! :)

1. I'm sorry I don't know Homer Hickman. I know who he was, but never had any sort of interaction with him. 2. To me, it was successful because it got off the ground. That was my job. For NASA, it was a disaster. But for NASA to get those men back home, it became successful all over again. 3. I have no idea. (laughter.)

What was it like working with ex Nazis brought over in Operation Paperclip? Did you see how they were just human beings like everyone else?

Well there were virulent, Jew-hating National Socialists and there were German guys who joined the Nazi party because that was the only way they'd let them screw around with rockets.

I'm in the process of getting my Mechanical Engineering degree. What can I do in the future to get involved with NASA?

Apply to NASA Pathways while you're a student. There's information on nasajobs.nasa.gov.

As someone who is about to graduate high school and wants to work for NASA (or a similar company) after college, do you have any tips/pointers to help me get a foothold in the industry or just tips in general? I plan on majoring in aerospace engineering at the University of Central Florida and possibly transferring to the University of Florida after a few years. Also, what was the atmosphere like in general while you worked as NASA? Did everyone seem to genuinely enjoy their job? How often did the work you were doing feel like something you were only doing because you got paid for it?

If you want to work for NASA, apply as a student intern. NASA loves hiring them. Go to nasajobs.nasa.gov and click the Pathways links at the bottom. There's one for current openings (so keep checking back), and the other has general information about the program.

What was the initial attraction that took you to NASA? Without their track record of going to space, how did they advertise positions?

Keep in mind when I joined up, NASA wasn't even in existence. Back then it was called "Long Range Proving Ground." I was working in Birmingham at the time, and I saw an ad in the paper for RCA jobs for a missile range in Florida. I read the article, and it said they were interviewing in a hotel here in Birmingham. So I called my wife and said I was going to apply later that day. I showed up, filled out an application, took a test. The rest is history.

What was your favorite project to work on?

One of the things that impressed me the most is how one program would dovetail into another. Everything had a purpose. And when that purpose was accomplished, to see it turn right into another was really neat. I really had fun. One time, we had an air breathing missile dropped from a plane out in the Atlantic. It had no destruct package on it. It was the only missile I could recall that had no destruct package. So we called in F86's in to follow the missile in case it went off course. They were to shoot it down. This was the only time I ever vectored a fighter plane. It was really exciting. It was one of those jobs where they said: "Here's what you have to do. Now go figure out a way to do it."
