Pin-pricks in the celestial sphere, through which shines the light of heaven? Or gods and heroes looking down from their constellations? Or lights kindled above middle earth by Varda Elbereth and brightened with the dew of the trees of Valinor? Science has long pondered the mysteries of the stars. This is how we finally figured them out.

Happy 90th Birthday General Tom Stafford

NASA wishes Apollo 11 astronaut General Tom Stafford a happy 90th birthday on Sept 17, 2020.

Stafford commanded Apollo 10, the first flight of the lunar module to the Moon. He also flew our first rendezvous in space on Gemini 6, and piloted Gemini 9’s path to Earth with pencil and paper when the vehicle’s guidance computer failed in space.

Throughout his career, Stafford flew more than 100 different types of aircraft as he pushed the envelope of our achievement in air and space. He also conducted our first diplomatic rendezvous on orbit with the Apollo-Soyuz mission.
