Charlie Duke – Episode 60

Legendary NASA astronaut Charlie Duke was the lunar module pilot for Apollo 16 in 1972 and became the 10th and youngest person to walk on the moon. Duke served as CAPCOM for Apollo 11, the first crew landing on the Moon. His distinctive Southern drawl became familiar to audiences around the world, as the voice of a Mission Control made nervous by a long landing that almost expended all of the Lunar Module Eagle’s fuel.

Greg Kelly quizzes General Duke with awe about his time in the space program, and how the astronaut views his own legacy–one he left on the moon, along with a picture of his family.

Plus, General Duke speaks eloquently about why faith plays an important role in his life today.
