On 12 November 2015, Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot, Al Worden will be talking at the Randolph Hotel in Oxford, UK at an evening event organised by the British Interplanetary Society and directly following the internationally renowned ReInventing Space Conference.

Apollo 15  was sent to the moon in July 1971. Its primary mission was to explore a previously unexplored area of the moon, the Hadley-Appenine region.  It was the most scientifically in-depth and ambitious mission to the Moon. Using new and improved scientific equipment the crew conducted experiments from orbit, as well as on the ground. Al Worden performed the first ever deep space EVA and still holds the Guinness World Record for “most remote human being”.

“I highly recommend meeting Al Worden! His personality, friendliness and energy makes his memories come alive. I felt as though I had been to the Moon with him!”

  • Talk by Al Worden followed by Q&A
  • Autograph signing (items to buy or bring your own Moon memorabilia)
  • Photo opportunities
