Old Forge Native Shares Out of This World Experience

Last Updated by Kris Hendrickson on

On July 20th, 1969, the astronauts of Apollo 11 took that famous "giant leap for mankind", becoming the first human beings to set foot on the surface of the moon.  Old Forge native Glynn Lunney was one of the flight directors for that historic mission, and helped invent the American space program during his 27 years at NASA.

Keystone Edition's Kris Hendrickson spoke with Glynn in Houston, Texas, where he recalled that historic flight, and described the Old Forge upbringing that prepared him for the adventure of a lifetime.
