Former NASA astronaut William ‘Bill’ Lenoir, who flew aboard the first operational flight of space shuttle Columbia in November 1982, died on Saturday, August 28 from head injuries suffered during a bicycle accident two days earlier. He was 71. Lenoir served as a mission specialist on STS-5 which became known as the “We Deliver” mission. Two commercial communications satellites were successfully deployed from the orbiter’s cargo bay. Lenoir was selected as a scientist-astronaut by NASA in August 1967. He logged more than 122 hours in space and retired from NASA in 1992.
