Never a truer statement…

The astronaut Edgar Mitchell died recently. My friend Nancy shared this on Facebook from a website called “I F****** Love Science”.

A global perspective… if only.

About John S

I'm blogging about the things I love outside work: music, sport, culture, London, with some photos to illustrate aspects of our wonderful city. And anything else that I happen to think is worth writing about!

    Yes, the great Edgar Mitchell has left us, and now just a handful of the moonwalkers remain.

    Mitchell is the quiet hero of Andrew Smith’s “Moondust”, one of my favourite books ever. (I’ve now read it three times, and loved it all over again late last year.) Smith makes it his goal to meet all the remaining men who once walked on the moon – nine at the time of writing, now seven – and the result is a brilliant mix of joint biography, analysis, meditation and wonder. J.G. Ballard found it “spell-binding”, which is good enough for me.

    Warmly recommended to anyone fascinated by space, technology, human ambition and the power of the imagination – all wrapped up in the amazing Apollo missions.
