Don Shields Remembers NASA’S APOLLO 11 MISSION as we remember Don Shields


Don Shields worked on the LEM 5, the Lunar Module that went all the way to the Moon. This was an interview we did with him for KNOW, The Journal of Lifelong Learning in July 2013. Our good friend Don passed in November 2018. Here is his LEM 5 story.

Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. This July 20, 2019 will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the landing.
