After Apollo 10 Commander Lt. Gen. Tom Stafford confirmed he’d attend the November 14th Cradle of Aviation Museum Air and Space Gala, Congress called him to speak on November 13th at the House Science Committee hearing about what must be done for NASA to successfully return to the Moon by the president’s 2024 Moon to Mars goal.

Stafford, determined to keep his promise to the Cradle of Aviation Museum, wasn’t daunted by the grueling schedule. He spoke in Washington, DC, and arrived the next day, Nov. 14th, at the Long Island gala in time to speak with guests and have about 100 photos taken with them, and receive the Spirit of Discovery Award.
