Deep:

In one of his last interviews, last month with The Associated Press, Schirra said he was struck by the fragility of Earth and the lack of borders.

"I left Earth three times. I found no place else to go. Please take care of Spaceship Earth," he said.

Awesome. They guy I got my Speedy from threw in a genuine Omega pressure suit strap made from Velcro. It's in a zip-lock bag with some official Omega paperwork in there. Like 15 inches long or something, way too long to actually use with my Speedy.
