Juan Joya Borja "El risitas" died today at 65 due to a long ilness

you probably will recognice him as the spanish laught guy meme.. he was a comedian and actor .. despite the stupid of his stories his hysterical laught was so contagious that it was imposible to not fall into it..  he was utterly famous in spain in 2000-2001 and weirdly became more widelly as the memes using one of his videos became wide spread..

I just heard that this guy passed away. And I can recommend his book, especially if you're into the history of the Apollo space program.

I hadn't even heard that he had passed until I saw your post.

The man flew to the moon and back; you'd think that his passing would at least have made the news.  :(

Shit! Shit shit shit. I never looked and had no idea he was on twitter :(

But thanks for letting me know so I can at least look, assuming his social media accounts weren't nuked.

I was growing up during Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo. Reading his book, and those from Chris Kraft and Gene Kranz gave me a much better idea what had been going on behind the scenes. The last time I visited the Boeing Museum of Flight in Seattle, I had the opportunity to literally put my hands on some of the consoles used in the flight centers back then. Like others, I'm drawn to artifacts...I like to feel history viscerally.
