Default Paul Weitz dies at 85

Paul Weitz , who commanded the maiden voyage of the space shuttle , Challenger , retired Naval Officer , test pilot , has died at the age of 85. He flew into space twice, I think it said.
These guys seem like they accomplished so much in their lives compared to some of us, that seem to just struggle to make a living and raise a family. These guys are the heroes of our time.
