     Jeez, I just woke up and read the title as “dies in Warcraft accident.”

  2. I had a moment of cognitive dissonance when this story came out. Astronaut killed by meteor makes sense, but killed by a boat?

  3. Wow, so sad. What a horrible thing for his sons to have to deal with. Reminds me of Pete Conrad making it all the way to the moon and back again, then getting taken out in a motorcycle accident.

    Condolences.
