Astronaut, Artist Alan Bean Dead at 86

Andrew Donaldson

Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire and his writing website Yonder and Home. Andrew is the host of Heard Tell podcast.

    We are quietly losing our first generation of spacemen.

    • We really are, and not enough attention is paid to it, I think. I might be biased as space overlaps into my aviation nerd-dom, but we have this amazing story of accomplishment not two generations removed that seems very much taken for granted at the moment. It would be nice if these gentleman get a upswing in interest before we lose them to history for good.Report
