  • Gordon Cooper, when a Legendary Astronaut became a WED Imagineer

    Editor's Note: Imagineer Pat Burke is back on Disney & More with an amazing story about one of the most legendary NASA Astronauts: Gordon Cooper!

    Gordon Cooper, when a Legendary Astronaut became a WED Imagineer



    Here is part three of D&M's "Man on the Moon" celebration, and Imagineer Pat Burke is back with a great story.

    Before the Apollo missions in the late 60's, the Mercury missions opened the way to the conquest of the moon. Seven legendary Astronauts were part of the Mercury team - link to pictures below - and among them, the famous Leroy Gordon Cooper that you can see above in this gorgeous 1962 NASA picture.

    What is less known is that ten years later or so, Gordon Cooper became a Walt Disney Imagineer and Vice-President of Research and Development! Incredible!

    Read the full article on D&M where the great Imagineer, Pat Burke, tells you his memories about Gordon Cooper:

    Very interesting! I had no idea that WED had its very own astronaut. Excellent story and well done by Imagineer Pat Burke.
