An Apollo-era NASA astronaut who was the primary individual 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 as a result of what he noticed as an absence of alternatives for scientists within the astronaut corps.
