John Young, an “early space pioneer” and the first astronaut to command the Space Shuttle, died at his home in Houston on Friday after suffering complications from pneumonia. He was 87. NASA issued a statement Saturday praising Young’s achievements during his 42-year career. Young’s “storied career spanned three generations of spaceflight,” NASA administrator Robert Lightfootsaid.

He “was one of that group of early space pioneers whose bravery and commitment sparked our nation’s first great achievements in space,” Lightfoot said. Young was the only astronaut to fly into space as part of the Gemini, Apollo, and space shuttle programs, and the first one to venture into space six times. He was the ninth astronaut to walk on the moon. Read more.

    • This morning I got quite a shock
      A cuckoo had escaped from my clock!
      Where did it go? Who’s its new host?
      Then I lucked out and saw this post

      The cuckoo’s now in Matzav’s tree
      Chirping out its lunacy
      Brandishing his doomsday tracts
      Undeterred by proven facts

      “How can you believe your eyes???
      All they tell you is just lies!!!
      All your thoughts are so askew
      Except mine! Cuckoo! Cuckoo!”

  1. Curious if we should walk on the moon. The president during the lunar missions was Nixon. He resigned. Hex? Lunar holy surface may not man go perhaps wise. Just a thought.

  2. They can walk on the moon but not live there. There is no planet or star other than earth where a human can exist long term. There is no life on other planets anywhere despite the atheistic evolutionists seeking to destroy The Torah. Evolution is science Fiction.

  3. I read that the nice reform plan to send a sefer Torah to suffer dust and climate on the lunar surface. It was reported that they have a fund.

    Curious. They would send it to space before they read it or understand its significance. Can you smell the pork that they wish to protect?

    Moon goy jews. They are special. Maybe not.

    What a shame. Esau and Amalek all their own. Chas V’Shalom. Let them blast off just to the dust.
