F. Curt Michel, scientist-astronaut who left NASA after losing the moon, dies at 80

Curt Michel, an astrophysicist who was among NASA's first scientist-astronauts but who resigned when it became clear he would not fly to the moon, died on Feb. 23. He was 80.

Michel's passing was reported on Friday (Feb. 27) by Rice University in Houston, where served as a faculty member before and after his time with NASA.

"Although he retired in 2000 after 37 years at Rice, Michel continued to keep an office on campus, where he pursued his studies of solar winds [and] radio pulsars," stated the university in a release.

Many of us will remember meeting Curt at the Sims-Hankow show in San Antonio in 2006. A nice guy, and sadly the first of the Group 4 astronauts to leave us.

They pronounced it Michael. I thought it was Michelle until corrected.
