Collins was the crew member who stayed in orbit on the Apollo 11 command module while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon. Later he oversaw building of the National Air and Space Museum.
How sad, although he lived a great life.
Never showed regrets for quitting the programme after Apollo 11 even though he would have for sure been given a captain position on a later moon mission and would have doe the last 80 miles down.
This speech in Congress where he adresses the need to take care of problems on earth without forgetting the new horizons is amazing. From 11th minute.
