Capt. Bruce McCandless, who flew on STS-41-B and on STS-31 celebrates his 70th birthday today (June 8, 2007).

Capt. McCandless became an astronaut in 1966, was capcom for Apollo 11 during the lunar EVA, and became the first person to make an untethered EVA with a jet backpack on STS-41-B in 1984.

Happy birthday Capt. McCandless and many more to come!

Happy birthday to former naval aviator and NASA astronaut, Bruce McCandless. Famous in part for his awe inspiring and iconic photo picturing him on the first untethered EVA during his first of two flights.

To many more well lived years!
