Q
I don't want to ask - I want to tell. Tell you that this is a brilliant website! I love the early pioneers of space travel and most of the pics of them are formal and stuffy. This puts them all in a different light. My favorite astronaut is Gus. Thanks for all the great pictures. Keep up the good work!

With Challenger safely back on the ground, STS-41-C comes to an end.

Two random dudes: So, are you and Colonel Scott BFFs?
Worden: ……….

Al Worden gets photobombed by everyone, 1971.

Mercury astronauts pose with comedian Bill Dana, 1963. I think that Wally was annoyed that he wasn’t asked to be in the picture, so he decided to photobomb everyone.

NASA Photo Scavenger Hunt, Item #4: Post a photo of the tallest person you can find.
(Yeah, so I’ve been slacking on my photo scavenger hunt.)
NASA rules state that you can be no taller than 6’4 to become an astronaut - which is perfect for Jim Wetherbee, who is exactly that height. Here he is at the Astronaut Hall of Fame induction in 2009, with Charlie Duke, Pinky Nelson, and Bill Shepherd.

Look at poor Ed Gibson behind him. And a very sneaky Al Worden photobomb. Priceless.
