As command module pilot for the Apollo 15 mission to the moon in 1971, Col. Al Worden flew on what is widely regarded as the greatest exploration mission that humans have ever attempted. He spent six days orbiting the moon, including three days completely alone, the most isolated human in existence. During the return from the moon to earth he also conducted the first deep space walk, becoming the first human ever to see both the entire earth and moon simply by turning his head. The Apollo 15 flight capped an already-impressive career as an astronaut, including important work on the pioneering Apollo 9 and Apollo 12 missions, as well as the perilous flight of Apollo 13. It's an unprecedentedly candid account of what it was like to be an Apollo astronaut, with all its glory but also its pitfalls. Hear his exhilarating account of what it is like to journey to the moon and back. Tickets $50. Call 410-273-5600 for tickets. Benefits Harford County Public Library
