Colonel Al Worden, received
two Maaters degrees in 1963
ond an honorary Doctorate of
Science in 1971, ond wos the
command module pilot for
Apollo 15, the fourth manned
lunar landing miaaion.
What did you do on the
Apollo 15 excursion?
Iflew everyone from earth
to the moon, so I got the fly-
log time. While in lunar
orbit, 80 percent of the time
I looked at the surface and
analyzed the macro-features
on the lunar surface, while
Dave Scott and Jim Irwan,
on the surface of the moon,
looked at the micro-features
such as small rocks and dust.
Ilooked at the large features

like meteor impact basons,
volcanic basons and that
kind of thing.
what did you study at
the University?
Icame hack in 1961. I was
in the Air Force, and the Air
Force had a program where
they sent some of their offi-
cers back to college because
they were in the missile busi-
ness and they needed techni-
cal people to take care of the
rockets: and 'missiles. I went
back in the guided misnile
program at the University
of Michigan, which is some-
thing that I used extensively
when I got down to Houston
because it was allf about
inertial guidance, orbital

activities, and trajectories, in
addition to all of the aviation
stuff we were taught, so it
made an ideal background to
go to Houston.
How did you get involved
Inthse space program?
I was selected because I
was good at what I did. I was
in the Air Force; and I decided
that I would be the best pilot
in the Air Force that I could
be, which meant I vsent to the
University of Michigan, got
a couple of masters' degreea,
and when they had a selection
at NASA, I had everything
they wanted.
