This is great! Thanks for sharing it, Rhonda! I admired him for going back into outerspace so many years after his original adventure!

I agree, Rhonda. This is very cool. I can't imagine what it was like for him to go back in space and see the changes that occurred since hee went up in that tiny little shuttle back in 1962. Thanks for sharing the pics and the links.

He is such a good looking man! So proud of brave men like him!
