As today 20th July 2008 is the 39th Anniversary of the first manned Lunar landing. I thought I'd post a little unsung tribute to my boyhood heroes, Astronauts all.
Mercury Programme:
Alan Shepard
Gus Grissom

Walter Schirra
Deke Slayton

Scott Carpenter

Apollo 1 Requiescat in pace guys.

Please note; The ashes of Gordon Cooper who died in 2004, are to be 'Buried in space' with those of James Doohan of 'Star Trek' fame 29th July 2008 in one of the first privately funded 'Space burials'
