NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK -
the 50th anniversary commemoration of Man landing on the Moon, the 115th Explorers Club Annual Dinner produced and honored a gathering of Apollo astronauts: Walt Cunningham (Apollo 7); Rusty Schweickart (Apollo 9); Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins (Apollo 11); Fred Haise (Apollo 13); Al Worden (Apollo 15); Charlie Duke (Apollo 16); and Harrison Schmitt (Apollo 17).
