Colonel Irwin was the eighth human being to tread the surface of the moon. On the Apollo 15 mission (July 26-August 7, 1971) he served as lunar module (Falcon) pilot. While Colonel Al Worden orbited the moon in the command module (Endeavour), Irwin and mission commander Colonel Dave Scott explored Hadley Rille and the Apennine Mountains of the moon. They collected 180 pounds of lunar surface material, including the famous "Gensis Rock." During the mission Colonel Irwin logged 295 hours and 11 minutes in space, 19 hours and 46 minutes outside the aircraft.
Irwin testifies: "I am now more than an earthling because of my moon walk-but in a spiritual sense, we can all be more than earthlings by surrendering our lives to Jesus Christ and living for him daily." You will also want to read To Rule the Night, Colonel Irwin's autobiography.
