Remembering Astronaut Dale Gardner - Learning tonight of the passing of 1978 NASA astronaut class member Dale Gardner. He was an early Space Shuttle pioneer astronaut who flew on STS-8 and STS-51A. There are plenty of EVA photos I could post of Gardner, but this one aboard Shuttle Discovery seems to show his exuberance for space flight.
