Astronaut Michael Collins has died at the age of 91. Collins was an Air Force Test pilot before he joined NASA in 1963. He first went into space as part of the Gemini missions with John Young. However, he became far more famous as part of the Apollo 11 mission, on which Neil Armstrong became the first human to walk on the moon. While Collins never walked on the moon, he was the astronaut trusted with taking Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to the moon and back home safely. After his time in space, Michael Collins became secretary of the Smithsonian Institute. He was picked by 6 teams, including Decaying Orbit-uaries and The Flying Comedy Government (!).
