This is very sad news. On the other hand, Dick and Pete (Conrad) are back together again.

I enjoyed hearing Gordon speaking at Astronaut Hall of Fame inductions. He always had a great smile.

Growing up, I had two favorite astronauts: Jim Lovell and Dick Gordon. I will really miss reading stories and posts about Capt. Gordon.

The hero roster continues to shrink...

Like his old friend and crewmate Pete Conrad, Dick Gordon was an original. Many gifted astronauts have flown in space after him, but I don't think anybody has done it quite like Dick.

This is a sad day for the NASA family and for everyone who followed the accomplishments of the Apollo astronauts.

Dick Gordon was the second astronaut I met in person. (The first was John Glenn.)

Rest in peace.
