I just wanted to alert those interested to a fascinating radio interview with Al Worden, in which he relates a crop of great stories.
His Apollo 15 venture to the moon was more than 40 years ago but ex-astronaut Al Worden reveals the same mental clarity that allowed him to become an astronaut and be selected as the Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot. His informative discussion presents the listener with unique insight into the space program and how to get your space vehicle from A to B (Earth to Moon). One does not need to be a “Trekkie” to appreciate the multifaceted demands of performing the exacting duties of an astronaut . Al Worden will whet your appetite for space travel! His book, Falling to Earth, spiked my blood pressure into the “hypertensive” region.
