RARE 1974 Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot Alfred Worden Autographed Hello Earth Greetings from Endeavor 1. A 1966 Group 5 Astronaut Selection, Air Force Colonel Alfred Worden was an accomplished test pilot and the Command Module Pilot for Apollo 15, the fifth successful moon landing flight of the Apollo program. While Commander Dave Scott and Lunar Module Pilot Jim Irwin explored the lunar surface, Worden maintained a lonely vigil in the Command Module orbiting the moon. Worden also conducted a 38-minute spacewalk on the return trip to the moon, making him one of most distant spacewalks still in history.
On 3-18-2020 Worden passed away at age 88, but his legacy contribution to the space program endures to this day. Item for sale is a RARE 1974 publication of Hello Earth.
