Crippen and Young

“When I first met Bob Crippen and John Young in Houston they were surrounded by hundreds of photographers and reporters from all over the world. Although almost every minute of their day was spoken for, they took the time to pose for me. Later, I met them again when they had more time to chat, this time at NASA in Washington.”
