John Young dies

Recommended Posts

Really sad to hear this. I read his biography (Forever Young) not so long ago.

Dammit, didn't know this as the BBC news site has sod all about it.

 

Apart from Armstrong himself, he was probably the biggest name of the twelve Moonwalkers. I attended a lecture by him on 4 July 2000 (I remember the date because the man introducing him pointed out that he had given up his Independence Day holiday) and he came over as a thoroughly charming man.

I stand corrected. It wasn't on the front page, so I wouldn't have found the story without your link.
