SIGNINGS AND EVENTS
Charity Signing - August 2010
Apollo 8 commander Frank Borman will sign memorabilia at ASTRONAUT CENTRAL in mid August 2010.
Col. Frank Borman is a "cold warrior." His goal was to beat the Soviet Union to the moon. He didn't care about the science or glory; his overriding concern was winning. After the Apollo 1 fire threatened to halt the program, his testimony before Congress saved the program. He became the Manager of the Apollo redesign team, showing the type of style that would land him as the CEO of Eastern Airlines later. The spacecraft was completely re-engineered in a little over a year. Borman was rewarded by personally beating the Soviets to the moon.
