Somehow, I thought men like this would be conducting moon flights on a regular basis when I grew up.

His career was singular, the one I always said I wanted out of all of them. I got to shake the hand of six different moon walkers at space fest in Arizona a dozen or so years ago, but he wasn't having any of that "sit at a booth and sell autographs" bullshiat. He showed up, gave a presentation during dinner, and then retired for a few drinks with his pals (presumably), much younger blonde wife in tow. No Cheeto-dusted interactions for this Commander.
Respect.
