Alfred Merrill Worden, 1932–.  Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot.  Excellent color photograph of Worden, boldly inscribed and signed To Eddie & Betty Sousa— / With Best Wishes / Al Worden. 

This is a beautiful lithograph of Worden posing with the American flag and a globe of the moon.  Worden has signed in black felt-tip pen.  The photograph is 8" x 10" and has been double matted in burgundy and dark blue to an overall size of 11" x 14".

Apollo 15, which flew July 26-August 7, 1971, was the fourth mission that landed men on the moon.  Worden orbited the moon alone—out of even radio communication while on the back side of the moon—while Commander David Scott and Lunar Module Pilot Jim Irwin spent three days on the moon and more than 18 hours exploring the surface near the Apennine Mountains, which are located on the southeast edge of the Sea of Rains.

Worden was one of the 19 astronauts whom NASA selected in April 1966. He served as a member of the astronaut support crew for Apollo 9 and as backup command module pilot for Apollo 12.  Following Apollo 15, Worden served as Senior Aerospace Scientist at the NASA Ames Research Center from 1972 to 1973 and thereafter as chief of the Systems Study Division at Ames until 1975.  He went into private aerospace engineering after he retired from NASA in 1975.

This photograph has been double matted in burgundy and dark blue to an overall size of 11" x 14" and is ready for framing.  The photograph, which is mounted to a board behind the mat, is in excellent condition.
