“He may not have received equal glory, but he was an equal partner, reminding our nation about the importance of collaboration in service of great goals. From his vantage point high above the Earth, he reminded us of the fragility of our own planet and called on us to care for it like the treasure it is,” Biden said in a statement. “Michael Collins lived a life of service to our country.”

“It’s a shame that when people are asked, ‘Can you name the Apollo 11 crew,’ Mike Collins is normally the name that doesn’t come to mind,” said French. “Because in many ways he was the keystone of the mission. He was the one who really knew how to fly the spacecraft solo (the only person who flew a spacecraft solo in the entire mission) and the only one who could get all three of them home.”

Collins’ family on Wednesday remembered him as quietly funny with a strong sense of gratitude.

“Please join us in fondly remembering his sharp wit, his quiet sense of purpose and his wise perspective,” the statement reads. “We also know how lucky Mike felt to have lived the life he did.”
