RIP Paul Weitz.

You will be missed forever.  :'(
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.

 Rest in Peace, Paul Weitz.
  Two great flights: Long-Duration Skylab-2 and Commanding the First Flight of Challenger- With all the later management responsibilities that more than qualifies as a great career!

Very sad. Our next Shuttle Sunday should be STS-6 in a tiny way of honoring him.
