World War II, the Nuremberg trials, combat in the Vietnam War, the
death of President John F. Kennedy, Watergate, and the Iran Hostage
Crisis, he was known for extensive TV coverage of the U.S. space
program, from Project Mercury to the Moon landings to the Space Shuttle.
He was the only non-NASA recipient of a Moon-rock award.
