    When I was at The Air & Space Channel, I had the honor of working with the likes of Apollo astronaut Pete Conrad and others of these pioneers of space. People like Pete and Neil are as brave as they are modest in their achievements, and this country (and “all mankind”) owes them an incalculable debt for their sacrifice and service.
