I don't know if this topic has been covered or not, but if you were in charge of picking an Apollo crew who would you pick and why? I for one would think John Glenn, Scott Carpenter, and Gordon Cooper would have made an interesting crew. Another choice would be Pete Conrad, Wally Schirra, and John Young. What do you think?

Can you IMAGINE the clash on the last 3? Who'd be the Commander? I can imagine the fist fights. LOL

Here's something for thought. It came up recently in a discussion (and you may see it elsewhere before too long) - how about this crew:

Jerrie Cobb - CDR
B Steadman - CMP
Jerri Truhill - LMP
