Author Francis French poses with astronaut Al Worden

What was it like to spend six days orbiting the moon, three of them solo, as the most remote and isolated human in existence? Fifty years after it happened, Apollo 15 astronaut (and Michigan's own) Al Worden's biographer Francis French will take you through the magical, mystical, spine-chilling moments Al Worden experienced from this remote vantage point, seeing sights no human had experienced before.
