Al Worden ' Apollo 15 ' Astronauts Signed Photograph Autograph £85.00
This is a hand signed Colour NASA photo 10" x 8" by the late American former Astronaut who was the Command Module Pilot on the Apollo 15 mission. There is a vertical crease in the centre of the photograph and it was inadvertently placed in an adhesive backed photo album so is backed by the album card. Tragically there was a Jim Irwin photo on the reverse which was totally ruined trying to get it out of the album - we all make mistakes !!!!! Priced accordingly.
Alfred Merrill Worden (February 7, 1932 – March 18, 2020; Col, USAF) was an American astronaut and engineer who was the Command Module Pilot for the Apollo 15 lunar mission in 1971. One of only 24 people to have flown to the Moon, he orbited it 74 times in the Command Module Endeavour.
During Apollo 15's return flight to Earth, Worden performed an extravehicular activity to retrieve film cassettes from the exterior of the spacecraft, the Apollo command and service module. It was the first "deep space" EVA in history, at great distance from any planetary body. As of 2020, it remains one of only three such EVAs that have taken place, all during the Apollo program's J-missions.
