Ensam i rymden

Eftersom jag är en rymdtönt så blev jag nästan lite tårögd till Al Wordens svar på frågan om han kände sig ensam “bakom” månen. Han satt nämligen ensam tre dagar i den rymdkapsel som cirkulerade runt månen i väntan på att kollegorna (Dave Scott & Jim Irwin) skulle bli klara med sina förehavanden på månen.  Uppdraget var Apollo 15 och året var 1971! Fabulastic!

You were a quarter of a million miles away from home though.

Yes, you’re a long way away but the thing that most impressed me about being in lunar orbit – particularly the times when I was by myself – was that every time I came round the backside of the Moon, I got to a window where I could watch the Earthrise and that was phenomenal. And in addition to that, I got to look at the universe out there with a very different perspective and a very different way than anyone had before.
