In 1969, The Apollo 11 space flight was one of the most dangerous missions anyone had ever attempted. Not only was NASA not sure the astronauts would be able to get there safely, but there were serious doubts about if they would make it back as well.
Because of that uncertainty, no insurance company would give the crew life insurance policies. So in preparation for the worst case scenario….it was up to the astronauts (themselves) to come up with an ingenious, alternative plan to make sure their families were taken care of. That’s why today, I’m asking you….. How did the Apollo 11 crew plan to make a bunch of money, if they never came back?
