:cry:
Gordon Cooper, one of the original astronauts, has died a the age of 77. "Gordo" was the youngest of the group. He piloted the 6th and last Mercury mission as well as flying for Geminii.

I know it's OT but there doesn't seem to be a forum that fits anymore and I think it needs to be noted. Another hero of my youth is gone.

A sad day. Really interesting since I just watched the From the Earth to the Moon series on TV this weekend. Man those guys were amazing.

Rest in peace Mr. Cooper, and thank you!

Growing up in the 60s and watching these brave men launched the imaginations of millions (including mine). Truly a sad day.
