The Guy Stuck Watching the Car

Timothy Birdnow

This is interesting. Michael Collins - the guy who drew the short straw and had to babysit the car while his siblings got to walk on the Moon - was not lonely at all, despite being the only person orbiting a planet a quarter of a million miles from home.

In fact, he rather enjoyed the solitude when the Columbia spacecraft went behind the Moon and out of contact with NASA; they were always bugging him about something.

At any rate, it's a pretty interesting read. Michael Collins Remembers the Apollo Moon Landing.
