Alan Shepard was one of the original Mercury 7 astronauts, you know, the guys with “the right stuff.”

Just a few years later, Shepard became the oldest man ever to walk on the surface of the moon.

Shepard was a key player in NASA’s Apollo space program, which put us on the moon in 1969.

And in 1994, Shepard, along with fellow astronaut Deke Slaytonnand two veteran journalists, co-authored a book about that mission to the moon Their book was called Moon Shot.

Sadly, Slayton died before the book was released. But I had the chance to meet and interview the great Alan Shepard .
