Chicago is so cold in January that not only are the three moon pioneers snuggling under a blanket together, Jim’s glove appears to have frozen onto his face.

This might be my favorite photo of Jim Lovell.

Whenever you are feeling down just remember that the abbreviation for Grissom Air Force Base in Indiana is GUS.

Anybody wanna see a moonwalker take the ALS ice bucket challenge?

OF COURSE YOU DO.

Thank you, Buzz Aldrin, for being so stunningly awesome.

Now this is great, but I have to ask: Why, oh why did he not challenge Gene Cernan to the ice bucket challenge?

BECAUSE THEN IT WOULD HAVE GOTTEN REAL.

Here are photos of the Mercury 7 astronauts eating watermelon in the desert.

I didn’t think I needed this until I saw this.

10/25/65: “Astronaut Wally Schirra’s startled look came early 10/25, before an Atlas-Agena target vehicle was even launched. But it might have been his reaction when he learned the Atlas was lost and the Gemini 6 mission postponed.”

Okay. I’m trying to snark on this photo but it’s hard, because Wally’s expression is so unsettling. I’ve never really “seen” him look so openly shocked.
Though I do love the lack of effort in writing the press caption. “Wow, this picture of Wally was taken before the mission was even cancelled! Actually, maybe it was afterwards. Aw, heck, maybe this photo was taken six months ago.”
