"Do Good Work!"

(Astronaut Virgil I. "Gus" Grissom - NASA Photo)

"Do Good Work," is based on an entire speech given by Astronaut Gus Grissom. Shortly after becoming one of America's first seven Mercury astronauts, Grissom toured the Convair plant that was constructing the Atlas rockets used to launch future orbital Mercury flights. Grissom was never comfortable speaking in front of crowds, and this was no exception. However, thousands of workers were assembled to hear the astronaut's remarks, and he then told them these three words, "Do good work." The assembly reportedly went wild with approval, showing that few words, well spoken and sincere, can inspire. The Aero Experience intends to continue in that spirit. Please leave your constructive feedback to our posts, and give us your ideas on what we should include on this site. And in all things, "Do Good Work!"
