RIP Ed Mitchell---the sixth man to walk on the Moon.
A hero, an explorer and a pioneer:
"He was a hero in the classical sense," Karlyn Mitchell, the astronaut's oldest daughter, said in statement. "Though he fulfilled his childhood dreams while still a young man, he managed to sustain an aura of excitement by evolving and reinventing himself. He never tired of encouraging others to strive and explore." http://www.space.com/31853-edgar-mitchell-apollo-14-astronaut-obituary.html
