APOLLO Astronauts Collins Lovell & Aldrin

Mike Collins, Jim Lovell & I [Buzz Aldrin] got a behind the scenes look at the Orion capsule being built at Kennedy Space Center. Like our bunny suits?

I shouldn’t have to tell you who these guys are or what they did, but all three have titanium cojones.

Lovell’s book “Lost Moon” is a can’t-put-down white-knuckle read, and was the basis for the excellent movie “Apollo 13.”

P.S. Tonight’s full moon is a “supermoon.”

Awesome. Jim Lovell’s summary of the ill-fated Apollo 13 mission can be found here. Although Tom Hank’s movie was great, the book it was based on, Lovell’s “The Lost Moon,” is a must read.

Recently there was a clever cartoon meme called “Tetris From Hell.” Now you can play it.
