    I'd tell ya, but then I'd have to kill ya

    Michael Collins, of Apollo 11, died last week

    He deserves notice, these guys are heroes. I think I've watched every movie and documentary about the Mercury/Gemini/Apollo programs, and it's still hard to grasp what they did. Buzz is still with us, the only one left from that crew.

    This is a great article on Mr. Collins:

    Thanks for posting this. A really good book on the run up to Apollo 11 that came out in 2019 is Shoot For The Moon by James Donovan. Collins always came across to me as the philosopher of the group/ A big loss.
