On Wally Schirra

Wally Schirra, one of the Mercury 7 astronauts, passed away earlier today. He was 84.

I hate to say, I actually don’t know much about Schirra except that he was the only astronaut to fly on Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. And that Lance Henricksen portrayed him in The Right Stuff.

The Mercury 7 now number two. Raise a glass, people, for Wally Schirra, a man who truly had The Right Stuff. 🙁
