[Glenn Peterson, 04/01/2024]

Erected in July 2019, the 10-foot-tall rocket gravestone marks the family plot of the still-alive James J. Cameron, who from 1961 to 1986 worked as a NASA engineer on nuclear missiles and spacecraft listed on the rocket's second stage. He seems to have planned wayyy ahead for his final mission.
