Grumman Technicians Working on the Lunar Module in Bethpage, Long Island, New York

Grumman technicians built the Lunar Module.  Grumman was a chief supplier of aircraft for the U.S. Navy. As such, it was accustomed to designing craft that could withstand the hard landings on an aircraft carrier. That experience probably served Grumman well as they designed the Lunar Lander, intended to be sturdy enough to land on the Moon’s surface.
