Astronaut and aeronautical engineer John Young passed away at 87 years of age. He is alone in having participated in the Gemini, Apollo and Space Shuttle programmes. He flew in Gemini 3, Apollo 10 (non landing orbit around the moon) and Apollo 16, but he is remembered most for being the commander of the first Space Shuttle mission, STS-1 aboard the Space Shuttle Columbia.

First Space Shuttle Launch - STS-1 (1981)


MOD NOTE: Since John Young died on 5 January 2018, I've moved this post into the new thread.  -DPvonC

Hard to tell about it.

He was one of the. One of the good actors. He didn't have the stellar roles.

Fame brought him the role of "Lead pan" in the Soviet TV program "Zucchini 13 chairs". It was a variety entertainment Comedy show. Permanent makeup artists played Reprise, it's alternated a music video. 15 years in the broadcast, 133 release, ~145 hours of airtime. (Derzhavin was not in all )

But that transmission ceased to exist before I was of conscious age.

I remember him in duet with pop artist Sirvintos. They acted as a compere at concerts, led TV shows were humorous numbers.

Here is the video where they are very young

They represent the experience of clairvoyance.

- For that I said Hello?
- hand?
- well done! And for what?
- the left?
- no! thinking, think!
- for what is right?
- well done

Still, I remember it on several movies of the 90s. Simple, somewhat silly Comedy. He played there a good, soft, old man. So - and- uncle.

Here's uncle died.

Department S Actor Peter Wyngarde dies aged 90

Quote
The actor Peter Wyngarde has died aged 90, his agent has confirmed.

Wyngarde played dandy detective Jason King in the 1970s TV show of the same name - which was a partial inspiration for the Austin Powers films.

He had numerous stage roles, as well as playing the gold-masked Klytus in Flash Gordon and Timanov in Doctor Who.

His agent and manger, Thomas Bowington, described him as "one of the most unique, original and creative actors" he had seen.

Oleg Pavlovich Tabakov (Russian: Олег Павлович Табаков; 17 August 1935 – 12 March 2018) was a Soviet and Russian actor and the artistic director of the Moscow Art Theatre.

Began acting in the mid-50s depicting chubby cheeks Teens entering into the life. Played Nazi bosses Schellenberg. Plump and smiling Koshchey immortal (contrary to all the canons).

And his voice said many Soviet cartoons. The most famous - cat Matroskin.

Sadly. Very sad. The departure of Soviet actors.

We in Cyrillic LJ, has already started a small mess. According to some, once supported Putin, then unworthy.

Ken Dodd.
British comedian and cultural icon for over 60 years died yesterday at the age of 90.
There were false rumours of his death only a month ago to which he'd replied that he was very much alive and planning his next tour.
Unfortunately, after a short illness he has succumbed.

''What a wonderful day for ramming a cucumber through the vicar's letterbox and shouting "the Martians have landed!"

R.I.P. Ken.
