Apollo 11 Astronaut Michael Collins mourned

NASA astronaut, former Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum director, and National Aviation Hall of Fame member Michael Collins has died at age 90. After the Apollo 11 command module pilot left the space agency, Collins ushered in the opening of the museum in 1976, which has since set the standard for large exhibits.

    Michael took this pic from the command module above the lunar surface during the Apollo 11 mission. What's interesting is that everyone who has ever lived except him is in this pic.

    I read his book a few years back, it was excellent. RIP Michael.
