NASA astronaut Don Williams, led mission to launch Jupiter probe, dies at 74

Donald Williams, a NASA astronaut who commanded a space shuttle mission that launched the first probe to orbit Jupiter, died Tuesday (Feb. 23). He was 74.

Williams' death was confirmed by the Association of Space Explorers, a society of astronauts and cosmonauts.

"We are sad to pass along the news that former astronaut Don Williams has passed away," the organization wrote on Facebook. "Fair skies and following seas, Cap'n."

Selected with the Thirty-Five New Guys, NASA's first class of space shuttle candidates chosen in 1978, Williams flew into space twice logging 11 days, 23 hours and 34 minutes off the Earth.

I cannot believe that Don Williams is dead, just twenty-four days after the passing of Edgar Mitchell; in 2012, I met with him during the Welcome "Discovery" Ceremony as well as got an autograph from him.

Today he's gone, but he won't be forgotten.
