Edgar D. Mitchell
Astronaut and Pilot of Lunar Module Apollo 14
I admire the level of awareness and wisdom that you have attained through your experiences.
Mitchell was selected to be an astronaut in 1966 and was seconded from the Navy to NASA. He was backup lunar module pilot for Apollo 10 and flew again as Lunar Module pilot on Apollo 14. Together with Apollo 14 commander Alan Shepard he holds the record for the longest ever moonwalk (9 hours and 17 minutes) and travelled further on the surface than anyone else.
Ed Mitchell was awarded honorary doctorates from the New Mexico State University, the University of Akron, Carnegie Mellon University and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.[From Wikipedia]
