Watch: The Influence of One Cleaner at NASA in 1960

Travel back in time to discover what it was like to work at NASA during the space race and how an individual’s contribution helps to achieve the organization’s goal.

In 1960, President Kennedy famously visited the facilities and was walking around asking people about their roles when he encountered a cleaner who said his job was to help put a man on the moon.

By ensuring everything was spotless, all of the sensitive equipment could function without fault. Thus, the cleaner did not view himself as simply a janitor, but a member of the NASA space team with an important role.
