Josh Gelernter: Americans in Space

Ed-White

Fifty years ago next month, Ed White made America’s first space walk

Josh Gelernter writes: We’re coming up to the 50th anniversary of one of the best-known photographs in history: astronaut Ed White floating in space with a gem-like blue Earth floating beneath him. Ed White made America’s first space walk on the first day of NASA’s Gemini 4 mission, June 3, 1965. Ed White, 1101650611_400tethered to the Gemini capsule by a gold hose, was on the cover of Life; White and his photographer, Gemini 4 commander Jim McDivitt, were on the cover of Time.

White and McDivitt were both members of NASA’s second astronaut class, the “New Nine,” who followed the original “Mercury Seven.” The New Nine are generally considered the all-time greatest group of astronauts. They included Frank Borman, who commanded the first flight to the moon, Apollo 8, and Jim Lovell, who navigated Apollo 8 and commanded Apollo 13. Lovell was the first man to fly in space four times, and the first to fly to the moon twice.

Also: Pete Conrad, who commanded the first American space station and the second moon landing, and Tom Stafford, the pilot for the first space-rendezvous mission (Gemini 6A), the commander of the “dress rehearsal” for the first moon landing (Apollo 10), and the commander of the first joint American–Soviet space mission, Apollo–Soyuz.

OH YES SHE DID: Woman Stabs Boyfriend Twice for Eating All the Salsa

liberals-in-shock-590

Police say Phyllis Jefferson yelled at her boyfriend before jamming a pen into his pelvis. Not satisfied yet, cops say she knocked over a TV and used a knife to stab the man in the stomach before driving away.

“She admitted the attack and told police she was mad because Buckner was ‘eating all of the salsa,’ they were supposed to be sharing.”

When officers arrived, they found Ronnie Buckner standing in the yard, bleeding.

Cleveland.com reports when Jefferson was stopped a few miles from the house, she admitted the attack and told police she was mad because Buckner was “eating all of the salsa,” they were supposed to be sharing.

He should have defended himself with this: Glockamole

Clearly, a missed Opportunity. He should have defended himself with GLOCKAMOLE!

Jefferson faces charges of felonious assault, and criminal damaging. Bucker is expected to fully recover.
