We have lost what should be a technological hero in the passing of Edgar Mitchell here in Lake Worth, Florida. I'm sure you're all familiar with the Alan Shepard questions about golfing on the Moon here at FT. But that was not the only athletic activity performed on our satellite: his mission mate, Captain Mitchell, threw a javelin to see how that track and field sport would pan out on the moon. I'd say that was awfully brave to be throwing pointed spears around when your only barrier to death is a spacesuit. And bravery must also have been in the equation to be on Apollo 14 after the near tragedy of Apollo 13. "Did they get all the bugs out" he must have wondered at lift-off.
