Issue Name: Jim Irwin and Al Worden signed Apollo 15 cover
Jim Irwin and Al Worden signed Apollo 15 cover with a Cape Canaveral postmark on the day the Falcon Lunar Module lifted off the lunar surface.
Jim Irwin (Apollo 15)
Irwin was the Lunar Module Pilot for Apollo 15 and the eighth man to walk on the Moon. Apollo 15’s objectives were more geologically focused than previous missions. This led to the discovery of the Genesis Rock, one of the oldest samples ever recovered, and dated at over 4 billion years old. Irwin was involved in the ‘Sieger cover’ scandal after the crew carried 398 covers onto the lunar surface without NASAs approval.
Al Worden (Apollo 15)
Worden served as Command Module Pilot for Apollo 15, and during his time in solo orbit in the Command Module he was 2,235 miles away from the nearest human being; a record which is still in the Guinness World Record Book as the ‘most isolated human being’. Worden was caught up in the ‘Sieger cover’ scandal after the Apollo 15 crew carried 398 covers onto the lunar surface for the German dealer Hermann Sieger, without NASAs approval. It took a law suit to force the US Government to return the covers back to the crew.
