Video: Durham Teen Who Found a Piece of Apollo 16 on an NC Beach Honored with VIP Seating at Shuttle Launch

July 8, 2011

Six years ago, 16-year-old Kevin Schanze found a piece of Apollo 16 washed up on shore in the small town of Bath, N.C. Following his discovery, he was contacted by NASA and they requested that he return the piece which he did. For his good deed, Kevin was recently honored with VIP seating for today's final space shuttle launch.

And speaking of the space shuttle program, did you know that Wilmington's ILM was a designated emergency landing spot for launching space shuttles? http://www.carolinabeachtoday.com/2008/10/space-shuttle-landing-at-wilmingtons.html
