Title: Can you identify this astronaut
Post by: rvg400 on 01/05/2018 05:28 PM
Hi there,

When we were in Florida in 2004 we were lucky enough to meet the astronaut in the attached photograph.

Unfortunately we cannot remember his name, can anyone help!!

He was fascinating and charming!!!

Al Worden is my guess. Both from looks and from what is visible on his patch.

Yes I remember now.

Thank you for that, it was great for the kids (5 and 9 at the time) to see and meet someone who had done something so extraordinary.

We need to do extraordinary again!!

I think it is Alfred Worden (Apollo 16), but I'm not sure

Al Worden flew with Apollo 15 (not 16).
