Capt. Eugene Cernan, USN (Ret.), holds a distinct place in history as the second American to walk in space and the last person to have left his footprints on the lunar surface. 


Lt. Gen. Thomas Stafford, USAF (Ret.), flew in space four times, including the historic Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, the first meeting of American astronauts and Soviet cosmonauts in space. 

Brigadier General Charles Duke, USAF (Ret), served as lunar module pilot of Apollo 16, and was the 10th of only 12 men to walk on the moon.  Apollo 16 was the first scientific expedition to inspect, survey and sample materials and surface features.


Commander M. Scott Carpenter, one of two living Mercury Seven astronauts who has the unique distinction of earning  the dual title, astronaut-aquanaut;  having orbited the earth as an astronaut and lived under the sea as an aquanaut.

Ed Buckbee, director emeritus of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center and founder of U.S. Space Camp, served as a public affairs officer during the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs.
