After a successful splashdown of Apollo 10 on May 26, 1969, news crews gathered outside the Houston-area homes of the flight crew—Thomas Stafford, John Young, Eugene Cernan—to speak with the astronauts’ wives. This footage for KPRC-TV captures the resulting conversations. Barbara Jean Cernan expresses her desire for her husband to fly another mission. Next, Faye Stafford and her children, Dionne and Karin, answer questions about their daily lives. Finally, Barbara Young marvels at the Apollo spacecraft and downplays the press expectation of danger.
