    Owen Garriot has left the building, 45 years after serving on the 2nd
    Skylab crew and 35 years after a stint on the Shuttle (9th flight,
    aboard Columbia).


    Mr Garriot was 88 and residing in Huntsville.


    Maybe C282Y is simply one of the hangers-on, a groupie following a
    future guitar god of the human genome: an allele with undiscovered
    virtuosity, currently soloing in obscurity in Mom's garage.
