Vax9 had a storied career stacking lunch trays at the Houston Mission Control commissary, starting with the Apollo 5 campaign.

Fondest memory: the day he surreptitiously latched onto Alan Shepard's leg and almost made it out to the parking lot.

Heartbreak: the switch from aluminum to cardboard trays that ended his career.

Future dreams: Vax9 is really excited about SpaceX. "Elon looks like the kind of guy who would run an all-titanium shop!" he gushes.
