Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins dies at 90
Michael Collins - one of the three crew members of the first manned mission to the Moon, Apollo 11 in 1969 - has died aged 90, his family say.
He died on Wednesday after "a valiant battle with cancer. He spent his final days peacefully, with his family by his side," they said.
Collins had stayed in lunar orbit as his colleagues Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the Moon.
