Michael Collins (1930-2021) was an American astronaut famous for being part of the Apollo 11 mission, which featured Buzz Aldrin and, more famously, Neil Armstrong, walking on the moon for the first time in human history. Sadly, Michael Collins was unable to go on the Moon, instead staying on the orbiting command module. This unfortunate circumstance had him nicknamed 'the loneliest man in history'. The Apollo Mission was neither his only nor his first foray into the vast world of space. He had been there one time prior, as mart of the Gemini 10 flight of the Gemini program. He was also not only the fourth person to perform a spacewalk, but the first one to perform one twice. Collins was inducted into a total of four Halls of Fame, These being The International Air & Space Hall of Fame in 1971, the International Space Hall of Fame in 1977, the US Astronaut Hall of Fame in 1993, and the National Aviation Hall Of Fame. He was also given several awards, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom and the Iven C. Kincheloe Award. Many musical artists have made songs inspired by or dedicated to Collins, including Jethro Tull (See For Michael Collins, Jeffry, and Me). In the song, Ian Anderson compares his feelings to the astronaut's, as he is left behind by Armstrong and Aldrin. On April 28th, 2021, Collins died of cancer at the age of 90.
