Astronaut Don Peterson, made first shuttle spacewalk, dies at 84

Astronaut Donald Peterson, who trained for a classified military space station program before becoming one of the first people to spacewalk from the space shuttle, has died.

Peterson's death on Sunday (May 27) at age 84 was noted by the Association of Space Explorers, a professional society for individuals who have flown in space.

"So sad to report that we have lost another member of the astronaut family," wrote the association on its Facebook page on Monday. "Fair skies and tailwinds, Don."

One of the first astronauts, I contacted via mail. Mr. Peterson responded within several days and sent back a nice letter.

A true gentleman. R.I.P. Donald H. Peterson.
