I am retired NASA astronaut, Al Worden. Ask me anything about being an Apollo astronaut.
Hi, I’m Al Worden, a retired NASA Astronaut. Ask me anything. I’m here at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex exploring the moon all over again at the Apollo/Saturn V Center. I served as the command module pilot for the fourth manned lunar landing mission and the first to visit and explore the moon’s Hadley Rille and Apennene Mountains on the southeast edge of Mare Imbrium. As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, seeing the astrovan, and lunar landing module here at the visitor complex is bringing back some amazing memories.
I’m also a poet, having published three books inspired by my space travel.
I’ll be taking your questions starting at about 1:45 p.m. EST.
Edit (2:15 p.m.): I'm signing off for now! Thanks for all of your wonderful questions. I'll be back tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. EST to answer a few additional questions!
Update (10 a.m.): I'm back online!
Edit (10:40 a.m.): I'm signing off again -- it has been a pleasure speaking with all of you. Thank you and I hope to see you at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex soon.
