RIP Wally Schirra, 1923-2007. One of the original Mercury Seven "Right Stuff" astronauts (just two left now), Schirra flew on Sigma 7, Gemini 7, and Apollo 7. From there on, it's stationkeeping.
"I don't want to go out in my bathtub, and I don't want to go out in my bed," Crossfield told her."I want to go out in my plane."
