Condolences to the Collins family for the loss of a great pioneer. I remember that photo he took during the Apollo 11 mission of the returning Lunar Module with the Earth in the background. A photo that had every member of the human race in it except him. Rest in peace.

As a child, we were playing outside when the Santa Barbara Mission bells unexpectedly started chiming. We just knew that it meant that the astronauts had landed on the moon and we ran in to join family and friends crowded around the TV. Michael Collin's name will live on forever.

I always imagined the Apollo astronauts as immortal, especially those of Apollo 11. I remember Apollo 11. I was born in 1965. In 1969, 45% of little boys wanted to be an astronaut when they grew up, and 45% wanted to be a fireman. I particularly remember the launch of Apollo 11, and day-1 on the moon. Among the crew, Collins has been my favorite through the years.

Rocket In Perpetuity, Commander Collins. He wrote the preface to the book _Our Universe_ in which he stated Saturn's moon Titan was his top candidate for human exploration. _Collins Base_ should be the name of the first human landing site on Titan.
