  • Chuck Yeager. The right Stuff
  • 97. May he rest in peace.

    Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
    Sunward Iíve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
    Of sun-split clouds, ó and done a hundred things
    You have not dreamed of ó wheeled and soared and swung
    High in the sunlit silence. Hovíring there,
    Iíve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
    My eager craft through footless halls of air . . .

    Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
    Iíve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
    Where never lark, or ever eagle flew ó
    And, while with silent, lifting mind Iíve trod
    The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

  • October 14, 1947. If you have to look it up, you are not a boomer. Instrumental in The Right Stuff and the space race. Rest In peace General Yeager.
