Tom Hanks' Apollo Hangover

October 18, 2012

Tom Hanks says watching the final flight of Nasa’s space shuttle Endeavour got him itching to get back into his very own spacesuit.
Thousands turned out to watch the retired spacecraft making the trip to its final resting place at the California Science
Center on Sunday after it had been towed into the airport by a Boeing 747 last month.

And Apollo 13 star Tom wishes that he hadn’t been forced to hand his own spacesuit back at the end of filming the 1995 double Oscar winner otherwise he would have donned it again to mark the occasion.

“If I had still had my old spacesuit I would have put it on to watch the thing fly over,” says Tom, 56.

“I was out on the lawn for an hour-and-a-half to see it and it was worth the wait.”
