Event Description:  Saturday, October 8, 2011 - 2:00pm Location: William M. Allen Theater Astronaut Al Worden is one of only 24 humans that have traveled to the moon. Worden will talk about his experiences as a support crew member for Apollo 9, backup command module pilot for Apollo 12, command module pilot for Apollo 15's mission July 26 - August 7, 1971, and his life following a distinguished spaceflight career. Worden will sign copies of his new book, “Falling to Earth: An Apollo 15 Astronaut’s Journey to the Moon,” following the program.
Promotional Image:  No Image.
Report on the Results:  A standing-room only crowd came to the Museum to hear Al Worden speak. We sold over 100 of his books. One of the younger attendees asked him what was the most profound experience of his Moon flight. He said, as do most of the men who went the Moon, that it was seeing the Earth in space.
