I was saddened to hear of the passing of Dr. Edgar Mitchell on February 4, 2016. 

I met Dr. Mitchell several times over the years and actually spent 2 days with him when my company retained him to appear at a trade show in 2002. He shared some fascinating insights and I felt privileged to have a drink or two with a man that walked on the moon.

He was a kind, humble and brilliant man. A very unique view and a free thinker.

Once again he is among the stars.
