The Only Man To Golf On the Moon

With Blue Origin taking off this week with Alan Shepard's daughter. It is a good time to talk about Alan Shepard. Alan Shepard is the Only Man To Play Golf On the Moon. During his Apollo 14 flight, Alan Shepard took his 2nd flight to space. He was one of the original Right Stuff astronaut. And the first American in space. At this time NASA only had four men to step foot on the lunar surface. Shepard was the fifth to step on the moon surface. And advance the science of the moon further. Alan Shepard’s oldest daughter, Laura Shepard Churchley, and GMA co-anchor Michael Strahan are passengers on Blue Origin’s NS-19 flight. In November 2021, Blue Origin announced the names of the six people who would fly aboard the New Shepard launch vehicle on its nineteenth flight, scheduled for Dec. 9th. The Blue Origin spacecraft is named the New Shepard after Churchley father.
