›An Evening with Apollo Astronaut, Al Worden
Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot, Al Worden will be talking at the Randolph Hotel, Oxford at a one-off evening event, following the internationally renowned ReInventing Space Conference, open to the public.
Al Worden performed the first ever deep space EVA and still holds the Guinness World Record for “most remote human being”.
On the 26th July 1971, Apollo 15 began its 12.5 day mission to the Moon.
Its primary mission was to explore a previously unexplored area of the moon, the Hadley-Appenine region. Apollo 15 was the first of the long-stay missions, and with a greater focus on science, Apollo 15 was the most scientifically in-depth and ambitious mission. Using new and improved scientific equipment the crew conducted experiments from orbit, as well as on the ground. It was also the first of the Apollo missions to use the Lunar Rover.
