Memorial Service to be held October 15 at Johnson Space
NASA will honor the life and pioneering achievements of original
Mercury astronaut Leroy Gordon Cooper, Jr. (Colonel, USAF, Ret.)
during a memorial service at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 15, at the
Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston (TX).
NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe, long-time associates and family
friends will pay tribute to Cooper. He was 77 when he passed away
at his home in Ventura (CA). Cooper was one of the first seven U.S.
astronauts. He flew the sixth and final flight of Project Mercury
in May 1963. Cooper also flew the third flight of the Gemini
Program with Charles (Pete) Conrad, Jr. in August 1965.
Due to limited seating, the general public is invited to watch
the service on NASA TV and the agency's homepage on the Web at
NASA's website. The memorial service will take place in JSC's
Teague Auditorium. A tree-planting ceremony will follow at the
nearby Memorial Tree Grove.
