Earthrise—My Adventures as an Apollo 14 Astronaut is a first person account of Edgar Mitchell’s extraordinary life—from growing up in Roswell, New Mexico as a farm boy, his days at NASA, to his founding of the renowned Institute of Noetic Sciences. It was an honor to help Edgar write Earthrise.
As the Lunar Module Pilot for the historic 1971 Apollo 14 Moon mission, Edgar Mitchell (September 17, 1930—February 4, 2016) was the sixth person to walk on the Moon. Edgar journeyed to the Moon with Commander Alan Shepard and Command Module Pilot Stuart Roosa. On the Moon, Edgar Mitchell and Alan Shepard set out for Cone Crater during their second EVA (Extra-Vehicular Activity) and are on record for the longest moonwalk of any Apollo astronaut.
