Tom Hanks wants to walk on moon

Actor Tom Hanks is desperate for space agency NASA to let him walk on the moon. The Apollo 13 star, who has long been a supporter of NASA and space travel, wants to join the organisation’s next mission into space in 2018. Tom says: “I have just two questions: What will be the mission? And can I go?”. But NASA sources say the oscar-winning star will to too old (62) and too tall (1.85m) to be an astronaut when the shuttle launches.
