Sheldon Buck graduated from MIT in 1958 with a degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics; he worked at MIT Instrumentation Laboratory, Earth and Planetary Science Department, and then The Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, now Draper Lab.
He writes, “My early work at the MIT Instrumentation Lab was performing missile guidance work for US Air Force programs: Atlas, Titian 2, and Minuteman 3. “Polaris became the core of Apollo,” he explained. “The concepts we learned on Polaris basically were the key points up through Apollo.”
