He agreed to team up, having no idea of what that decision would mean to his life, to Caltech and to the nation. “-Caltech

    Absolutely a job well done. Frank Malina will be remembered for his
    amazing contributions and unlimited insight, talent and dedication to his
    beliefs and life’s endeavors. He will not be forgotten, but take his place
    in the history of rocket science.
