The space community is in mourning as it pays tribute to a true pioneer and hero of the Apollo era. Walter Cunningham, a former astronaut, and lunar module pilot passed away at the age of 90.

Cunningham will always be remembered for his role in the historic Apollo 7 mission, which was the first manned test flight of the Apollo spacecraft and the first manned flight of the Saturn IB rocket. This mission was a crucial step in the Apollo program, paving the way for future manned missions to the Moon.
As a highly respected member of the astronaut corps, Cunningham was known for his intelligence, leadership skills, and bravery. His contributions to the space program will never be forgotten, and his legacy will live on through the countless people he inspired.
