Anybody see it?
Cooper probably did tell those stories, and they seem typical of the fantasies he descended into, in his final years. Cooper got involved in all sorts
of weird projects once he didn't get the moon flight he expected as his right,. and was eased out of NASA - but still enjoyed TV gigs. He became
spokesman for a company selling magic engines that turned air into fuel [until it was shut down by the Federal Trade Commission]. He claimed he saved
the shuttle program from a lethal design flaw by relaying a telepathic warning from space aliens. He naively flacked for several bogus aviation
investment schemes that cost his friends and others who trusted him millions of dollars -- and lost his own savings in them, too. He described his
capsule getting hammered by a meteor storm that nobody back on Earth found even a scratch from -- and he claimed to have taken photos from space on
which you could read license plates. He packed a travel bag and his camera when he was promised a space ride on an alien craft, but then claimed it
was cancelled because of an extraterrestrial political spat.
My advice: Remember him and honor his glory days, don't exploit his human failings in his declining years -- as this show gives all indications it
intends to do. Shameful.
