Today we mourn the loss of friend, former astronaut Alan ‘Dex’ Poindexter, as the result of a tragic jet ski accident off the coat in Florida. Dex was a very talented photographer, friend, husband and father. Our hearts go out to Lisa and their two sons during this very sad time. I am at a loss for words, so this is a very brief blog post today.
Leslie and I had the fortune of knowing Dex, and I wrote about our behind-the-scenes NASA visit back in late 2010 on this blog:
Godspeed, my friend. We miss you.
