    We were off-course 97% of the time

    Just heard a wonderful anecdote from a NASA old-timer and am posting it to check its accuracy with this exhalted group. this gento told me that "our rockets were actually on-course only 3% of the time on the earth-moon-earth trip. That is why we had a mission control."  

    I kinda suspect that he was oversimplifying in the intersts of a good story, but am otherwise unqualified to judge.  Your opinion? -p
