RIP John Young, Astronaut
Posted by GAF on Sunday, January 07, 2018 1:35 AM

Thought I would make mention of the passing of John Young, Captain, USN Rtd.

A member of the second group of astronauts selected after the original seven, he made 6 trips into space, including walking on the moon.

Another one of my childhood heroes gone.

God speed!

Never heard of him... Wasn’t mentioned on MSN....

 

He flew Gemini, Apollo, and the Space Shuttle... and was critical to getting Apollo 13 home alive. 

Im sure MSN was too busy with fluff to carry the passing of a real hero and person of true scientific and historic significance. 

 

F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!

U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!

N is for NO SURVIVORS...

This is a little late, but amusing enough to post. Big Smile

John Young was the guy who snuck a corned-beef sandwich into space.
