In Memory of Michael Collins

On April 28th, 2021, the world lost Apollo 11’s pilot, Michael Collins.  As a lifelong enthusiast of space exploration, Collins made a huge impact on the aerospace industry, if not the whole world. Being the first man to orbit the moon alone, Collins truly set the stage for the future of human exploration. From all of us at Red Canyon, we send our love to his family and close friends; he will be greatly missed.
