Philip Chapman, first Australian-born NASA astronaut, dies at 86

An Apollo-era NASA astronaut who was the first particular person born in Australia to coach for a spaceflight, Philip Chapman has died at the age 86, having by no means made it into orbit.

Chapman died on Monday (April 5) in Scottsdale, Arizona, virtually 50 years after he resigned from NASA on account of what he noticed as an absence of alternatives for scientists within the astronaut corps.
