Commander James McDivitt, Command Module pilot David Scott and Lunar Module pilot Russell Schweickart comprised the crew of Apollo 9 in 1969. Their mission was to test the components and behavior of the Lunar Module in Earth orbit; this included operating the LM independently.

Former BREC Center Supervisor Tom Northrop will present the "Apollo 9 Fiftieth Anniversary" talk at HRPO on Friday 1 March, 7:30pm to 8:30pm. The talk has no admission fee and is aimed at a general adult audience.
