I'm so happy 2016 is going to end soon. This year has been shit. Hopefully we'll lose less great people in 2017.

He was an aviation legend and an American hero. He was a great man.

Fascinating man, he was truly larger than life. I'd say his 95 years on this earth were pretty amazing, what a great story.

And if you're not picky about species, Ham was the first American in space.

Shepherd from the Mass Effect trilogy is named after him while Ryder from the upcoming Mass Effect Andromeda is named after the first American female in space aka Sally Ride. Nice reference especially from a Canadian video game company.

The man was married for 73 years. That alone is amazing these days.
