URGENT UPDATE: It is with a heavy heart that Ken Willoughby and Space Lectures must announce that due to an unforeseen illness Capt. Cernan is unable to travel to the UK.
As recently as Tuesday morning the Cernan camp were finalising hotel details. Capt. Cernan was determined to make the trip but fate has not been kind and while this comes as a huge disappointment to everybody (not least to Capt. Cernan himself) we must respect his decision to postpone and we wish him all the very best for a speedy recovery.
But all in not lost!
We are delighted to confirm that retired ‘General Tom Stafford‘ (GT-6, GT-9, Apollo 10 and ASTP) has kindly agreed at just 48 hours notice to take Gene’s place.
Both Capt. Cernan and Space Lectures hope to reschedule the planned event for a later date and we will share news with you as soon as we know more but in the meantime, the event this week goes ahead as planned with “Super Sub” General Tom Stafford.
