Most of us are aware that 50 years ago (July 16), a huge rocket carrying three brave American astronauts blasted off from the Kennedy Space Centre on one of the most daring endeavors in human history. What is less well known is Canada’s prominent role in this amazing feat.
The two stage lunar module was conceived by a Canadian engineer working for NASA.
It was Canadian James Chamberlin who proposed the two-vessel concept of a lunar orbiting command module, and a second module that would land and later blast off from the surface to carry two astronauts back up to the command module. Canadian Owen Maynard became chief of systems engineering for the Apollo program, and it was he who laid out the design for the lunar lander and its two sections. Yet another Canadian helped design the heat shield for the returning command capsule. Although shields had been developed in the Mercury programme, Apollo 11 would be re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere at far greater speed and steeper angle which called for greater protection.
Canada Post released commemorative stamps honouring both Owen Maynard and James Chamberlin, as well as other Canadian contributors to NASA’s Apollo space program.

After a rough couple of quarters, the Canadian economy is now back in the saddle thanks to a rebound in trade, the stabilization of the housing market, and the return of oil production after earlier mandated cuts. Whether or not momentum can carry into the second half of 2019 will depend on the ability of the global economy to weather any escalation of the U.S.-China trade war. For now, The National Bank of Canada is sticking to its forecast of 1.4% for 2019 GDP growth.
