Donald Stullken, Apollo recovery team leader
1920-2009

Donald Stullken died in his sleep at 89 on Dec. 12, 2009, his granddaughter Sally Stullken Whitley reported. Stullken was NASA recovery team leader for Johnson Space Center's Landing and Recovery Division during the Apollo missions. He was often the first person to welcome the crew when they stepped from the recovery helicopter.

In 1958, Dr. Stullken was a member of the team of scientists that developed the biocapsules in which the monkeys "Old Reliable" and "Baker" were sent into space in the nose cones of U.S. Army Jupiter rockets. He helped develop the life support system, animal restraint, and training of the monkeys.

A moment of silence can be signified by a reply with no words and only a period.

Godspeed, Dr. Stullken. I hope there was red carpet laid out for you, and someone smiling and waiting to shake *your* hand.
