Charlie Duke (Apollo 16) and me. This was taken in 2009. Even though he has walked on the moon, he is probably best known for something he said. He was the person talking to Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin as they landed on the moon. First, Neil said, "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." Then Charlie said: "Roger, Twank...Tranquility, we copy you on the ground. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue here. We're breathing again. Thanks a lot!" I ran computers during his Apollo 16 flight. I now have a Robbins Apollo medallion from his collection.
