Paul van Hoeydonck with "Fallen Astronaut" Sculpture

Belgian sculptor Paul van Hoeydonck holds up a copy of the minituare aluminum sculpture he created called "Fallen Astronaut," which was taken on the Apollo 15 mission to the Moon and left there along with a plaque honoring the 14 American and Soviet space travelers who had died to that point in service to human spaceflight. The photo was taken circa 1972.
