That picture isn't doing much to support his claims of sound mind.

 

Also, is he at home - in which case it looks fairly small. How much money is he supposed to have?

Apollo astronauts pose for a portrait at the 2019 Explorers Club Annual Dinner in New York City on 16th March 2019. They are from left to right: Charlie Duke (Apollo 16), Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11), Walter Cunningham (Apollo 7), Al Worden (Apollo 15), Rusty Schweickart (Apollo 9), Harrison Schmitt  (Apollo 17), Michael Collins (Apollo 11) and Fred Haise (Apollo 13).

What were the chances of Aldrin being the one you could spot a mile off due to his lunatic attire?

That said, Charlie Duke appears to have mistaken his valet parking jacket for his normal DJ.

Cosmonaut and DDP pick Valery Bykovsky has died at 84.

 

Best I can do is a Spanish language source so far, figured more of y'all speak that than Russian.

 

Edit: My bad, here's an English one already.

Mr Thompson (the guy on the left) buggered off half way through my Russian 'O' level course to take up a position at a public school (I think American's say private school). Mr Light (the guy on the right, who was fluent in Russian and French) refused to give up one of his French language classes to allow us to finish the course.  :angry:

The face if familiar but I don't recall his name and he wasn't a foreigner; all staff and pupils were caucasian for the first three years I was there. :o 

I can name about a half of them and my favourite is Jock Shields (physics teacher, second from right, back row) who had a terrific sense of humour and took every opportunity to explain Brownian motion because it gave him an excuse to smoke a fag in class.  :lol:

We had an Indian maths teacher.  We could barely understand a word he said.  I was shit at maths anyway, so it didn't make much difference to me.

If he is still with us he'll have to be at least 90. 

Although a lot of 'em would be over 100 now, the only one I'm certain of being dead is Derek Carter, fourth from left, middle row.

He was my sixth-form master and would check the smoking room toilets to complete morning registration.  :smoking-smiley:

Although he's not in the photo above, I'm pretty certain this teacher has croaked:
