Ghostsof1915 Posted January 7, 2018 Share Posted January 7, 2018 One of my first memories was watching him walk on the Moon on TV, always been a hero of mine. Naval Pilot, Test Pilot. Went to NASA where he flew Gemini 3 (And smuggled a corned beef sandwich on board), and Gemini 10. Flew Apollo 10 which was the dress rehearsal for the lunar landing of Apollo 11. Went on to command Apollo 16 where he became the 9th person to walk on the moon. After that he flew the first Space Shuttle Mission, in STS-1 and then STS-9 which first flew the spacelab. He was critical of NASA after the Challenger explosion. Logged 9,200 hours in space. You're among the Stars now John. Thank you for your guiding light, and ironically very down to earth and cool person. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
