I don’t think we’d have got to the moon without what IBM did, and I don’t think people know that. NASA never built a rocket. NASA never built a spacecraft. NASA never built a computer. They funded it, they managed it, but industry built it. I think industry deserves every bit as much credit as anyone does, and IBM deserves every bit as much credit as any in industry for the space program.
