Remembering Apollo 7 astronaut Walter Cunningham, in 10 photos

Without his pivotal work, humans may have never landed on the Moon.


At 90 years old, former astronaut Walter Cunningham died this month.

He was the last living member of the Apollo 7 crew.

In 1968, Cunningham piloted NASA’s first crewed Apollo flight.

Along with fellow astronauts Walter Schirra Jr. and Donn Eisele, he spent almost 11 days in orbit around Earth.
