Extraordinaire récit de son voyage sur la lune : « My trip to the moon was an exciting timpe from lift-off to splashdown. It was one exciting adeventure after another. The lift-off itself was very, very shaky atop the huge Saturn V rocket for about the first three minutes […]. We landed on the moon four days after lift-off. John Young an I were very excited ! […] Everywhere we walked, we left a set of footprints. When I had been back on Earth in my spacesuit and life support equipment I weighed 632 pounds. But on the moon I only weighed 60 pounds and I could jump like a kangaroo ! I was excited, fascinated and I was enjoying myself very much. I felt right at home. My walk on the moon was eight years ago and is still a fond memory for me. »
