R.I.P. Wally Schirra

I'm not sure why I'm writing an R.I.P. for Wally Schirra; he was the only one of the Mercury 7 I could never remember--which, paradoxically, means that I never forgot him. (Really, whenever I'd think of the Mercury astronauts, I'd say "Uhhh...Slayton, Cooper, Grissom, Glenn, Carpenter, Shepard, and the guy I can never remember." Then someone would say "Which guy?" And I would say "Wally Schirra.")

Anyway, astronauts are cool and space is awesome.

Seven-year-old boy mode off.
