Charlie Duke ’53 recalls Apollo 11 moon landing on the 50th anniversary

On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon and changed history for space exploration. In this video, astronaut and Farragut graduate, Charlie Duke ’53S, who later became the 10th and youngest man to walk on the moon with Apollo 16, recalls his experience being CAPCOM for the landing.   ✨

These moments make us so proud yet humbled that we could be at the beginning of a journey that led to the moon. “Keep your vision wide,” says Charlie. ⚓️

Farragut graduate Alan Shepard ’41 also walked on the moon with Apollo 14.
