March 24, 1979: The world standard for coolness goes up one notch. Because you can’t really get much cooler than two badass astronauts in front of the world’s first reusable orbital spaceplane balanced on top of the world’s most iconic airliner design.

One of my favorite photos!

Ultimate badasses

"Former President George H.W. Bush and John W. Young, JSC Associate Director, embrace near the Johnson Space Center’s Mission Control Center prior to a visit to that facility by the former Chief Executive and First Lady. JSC Director Jefferson D. Howell, Jr. is at left."

1) This is lovely.
2) Do you think Bill Clinton ever gets jealous of John interfering with his bromance with 41?

In Florida, it’s still miniskirt season. 
John Young and his wife, Susy, in 1972…post-Apollo 16. Also, John is wearing some very stylish trousers.
