Astronaut Bruce McCandless Passes At Age 80

posted by Gerry Martire - 

NASA confirmed yesterday the passing of Astronaut Bruce McCandless.  He was 80. Bruce was the first human to do what millions had dreamed of forever, to float free in space using a jetpack! Bruce accomplished this on one of the shuttle missions.  Bruce had been with NASA forever and in fact that is HIS voice going back and forth with Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the first moon walk mission! Here is the actual moment as it happened.
