16 years. 141 caps. The end of an incredible career. The end of an era 😢
Legend indeed! Happy 95th Birthday Jim Lovell. That’s a great photo @AndySaunders_1. It’s only in space that we see that pure white sunlight flooding in - straight from the heart of a nuclear fusion reaction with no obscuration.
Happy 95th Birthday to Jim Lovell!
