Dick Gordon is a graduate of the University of Washington and earned his
wings as a Naval Aviator in 1953. In September of 1966, he served as
pilot for the Gemini XI mission, which included the successful
completion of the first tethered station-keeping exercise, setting a new
altitude record of 850 miles, and completion of the first fully
automatic controlled entry. Gordon also served as the command pilot on
Apollo XII, remaining in orbit aboard the command module
throughout the 31-hour lunar surface stay by crewmates Pete Conrad and
Alan Bean. Apollo XII accomplishments included the first precision lunar
landing in the moon’s Ocean of Storms, installation of a nuclear power
generator station to provide the power source for long-term scientific
experiments, and completion of a close-up inspection of the Surveyor 3
