Happy 90th Birthday General Tom Stafford

NASA wishes Apollo 10 astronaut General Tom Stafford a happy 90th birthday on Sept 17, 2020.

Stafford commanded Apollo 10, the first flight of the lunar module to the Moon. He also flew our first rendezvous in space on Gemini 6, and piloted Gemini 9s path to Earth with pencil and paper when the vehicles guidance computer failed in space.

Throughout his career, Stafford helped us push the boundaries of what's possible in air and space. He flew more than 100 different types of aircraft, and conducted our first diplomatic rendezvous on orbit with the Apollo-Soyuz mission.
