SIGNINGS AND EVENTS
Charity Signing - October 25, 2010
General Jim McDivitt will sign memorabilia at ASTRONAUT CENTRAL in mid October 2010.
Jim McDivitt was the first rookie commander of an American spaceflight. His first flight was Gemini 4 in 1965, the flight of the iconic spacewalk of buddy Ed White. Jim won a Pulitzer Prize for the beautiful photography of Ed floating in space with the Earth beneath.
His second flight was Apollo 9, which tested the lunar lander for the first time. He could have commanded a third mission and become a moonwalker but decided to become the Apollo manager instead, overseeing Apollos 12-16.
