MALE SPEAKER: I was at Candlestick Park in San Francisco, and they stopped the baseball game and put the landing on the speaker system. The Eagle has landed, or Tranquility Base, the Eagle has landed, and then after a few formalities, they resumed the baseball game.

INTERVIEWER: That was great. What other memories, fond memories have you had of NASA over the past 50 years?

MALE SPEAKER: I've had fond memories and sad memories.

One of the things I enjoy about NASA is visiting both Cape Canaveral and Houston, and I have done both twice.

One of the sad memories is I happened to be in Washington when the Challenger exploded, and we went to the Aeronautics and Space Museum about an hour or two after the tragedy in space and went and saw the movie on the IMAX, and the movie had the people who had lost their life. At the end of the movie, you walked out, and everybody was crying. That was a very sad memory.
