  1. I've read all the Apollo astronauts biographies and autobiographies.
    Al Wordon's "Falling to Earth" was one of the best.A true American Hero who had the 'right stuff'.
    God speed Al Worden.

  2. Hey NASA, us taxpaying Americans are giving you 60 million dollars a day. Why isn’t there a camera on the moon? Give us a real picture of earth from the moon. You owe us that at the very least! ✌️
