It took Musick 25 years to generate the images that would reflect this moment. Carr assisted in the engineering and fabrication of the work. Carr passed away on Aug. 26, 2020 at age 88.
“The space program was arguably mankind’s most creative effort of the 20th century. Spin offs from digital computers opened vast new vistas in science and technology. From the lunar rover, which Carr helped design, came the electric wheelchair, and that was just the beginning. Propelled by a superordinate goal to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade, men and women worked incredible hours with self-sacrificing dedication. Their efforts stand out in history as a model for what can be achieved by such a united spirit. It can serve as an example today as the world struggles to thwart a pandemic, redress centuries of discrimination, battle climate change, and bring peace to our fragile home,” Musick said.
