Guest announcement Astronaut Bruce McCandless

Recommended Posts

One of the nicest guys you will ever meet, Bruce Mccandless was the first astronaut to fly in space untethered using the MMU which he helped to develop. Bruce has been on two shuttle missions STS41-B and STS 31. He has logged over 4 hours flying untethered and served as capcom during the Apollo 11 mission.

I'm going to be on a very limited budget for this event with Buzz being there but that image of him floating untethered was just incredible. I remember it well. Might have to meet him too.

Great guest. I was lucky to meet him the last time he was over, and believe me, he is a real nice person to meet.

Hi everyone

The basic facts about collecting Apollo astronaut era autographs, is that none of them are getting any younger.

We are trying to get as many as we can over before they decide to stop flying transatlantic.

When the Apollo days are over you guys will still have all those wonderful memories of meeting these great men.

This is amazing. This is a man who I genuinely count as one of my heroes, I'd love to ask him how it felt up there to be completely free.

Hello!

 

Would it be possible to get autograph photos at the table which shows Bruce as he was CapCom during Apollo 11? It would be nice,because we have the 45th anniversary of Apollo 11 this year.

Thanks.

 

A 45th anniversary-photoshoot of Buzz and Bruce, the "Moonwalker And His CapCom",would be great as well.

 

Best

Helmut

I'm not sure how many photos of Bruce as Capcom for Apollo 11 there actually are. I contacted a well known space artist, who also does a good line in photos, some years ago to ask if he had any. The only ones he was able to send me where some very general shots of mission control where you could just about make Bruce out. Not to say they don't exist of course but I've never been able to find any.
