Godspeed, Wally

Just a brief note to mark the passing of one of the original Right Stuff rocketmen, astronaut Walter M. “Wally” Shirra Jr. Wally was one of the Mercury 7 team, as well as having flown in both the Gemini and Apollo programs.

No comment, no moralising, no pithy statements – just Godspeed, Wally, as you begin your next great voyage.
