Abstract:

Al Hibbs began his employment at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in 1950. He discusses his involvement with the Loki rocket and Sergeant missile projects, and also the evolution of JPL from an institution performing research and development for the U.S. Army into a space science organization including the focus on planetary science rather than manned missions. Hibbs was instrumental in establishing JPL's Space Science Division.

Other topics on which he touches are the role of NASA's Space Science Steering Committee in selecting experiments for space missions, JPL's working relationship with the Ranger scientists, NASA-JPL relations, and JPL-Caltech relations.
