The Righteous Stuff

 

 

The Register guys stumbled upon a 1960 NASA photo of the Mercury Seven. A few days ago NASA website's picture of the day featured the astronauts on survival training in Nevada.

Anyway, the guy with the grin in the middle is not the Iranian PM, it's the first American in space, Al "Jose Jimenez" Shepard.

Sadly, Wally Schirra, second from the right in the photo, passed away just a few weeks ago.
