Family, fellow astronauts to celebrate life of moon voyager Al Worden

An Apollo astronaut who set a record for social distancing is being remembered for the close relationships he made in life.

Alfred “Al” Worden, who died in March at the age of 88, is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for being the “most isolated that any human has been from another person,” a feat he achieved while orbiting high above the moon as part of NASA’s Apollo 15 mission in 1971. Now his fans, friends and family are gathering virtually to celebrate his legacy.
