    Having spent many a weekend partying with JFK & MM, I believe the guy with sunglasses and cigarette is Elvis or one of the space chimps SPCA lawyers. The aforementioned pin is not a KKK pin but a XXX pin.

    I'm curious what the gray, periscope-shaped thing is descending from the upper-right of the photo.

    In the background: It's Werner von Braun also wearing sunglasses sitting to the left to what appears to be a periscope. He was one of the chief architects behind the Saturn V.
