A hero of the American Space Odyssey, Frank Borman led the first team of American astronauts to circle the moon, extending man's horizons into space.
He is internationally known as commander of the 1968 Apollo 8 mission. A romance with airplanes that began when he was 15 years old, took Frank
to the Airforce and then to NASA. In 1967 he served as a member of the Apollo 204 Fire Investigation Board, investigating the causes of the fire
which killed three astronauts aboard an Apollo spacecraft, reminiscent of the Challenger tragedy. Later he became the Apollo Program Resident Manager,
heading the team that re-engineered the Apollo spacecraft. He also served as Field Director of NASA's space station Task Force.
