NASA astronaut Dick Gordon, pilot of Apollo 12, dead at 88


Gordon became one of only two dozen men to fly to the moon when he crewed the second lunar landing in 1969.

Dick Gordon, a former NASA astronaut and the command module pilot on Apollo 12, died Monday at the age of 88.
Gordon, whose death was announced by NASA Tuesday, was one of only two dozen men to fly to the moon, making the trip as a member of the crew on the second lunar landing mission in 1969. Gordon was slated to make a moon walk as the commander of Apollo 18, but that mission was canceled due to budgetary cuts.
While he never got the chance to walk on the moon, Gordon spent more than 315 hours in space on two missions. Gordon was also the pilot for the Gemini 11 mission in 1966, performing two spacewalks.
