SPACE SHUTTLE PROGRAM

 

Space Shuttle

 

Since 1981, NASA space shuttles have been rocketing from the Florida coast into Earth orbit. The five orbiters — Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour — have flown more than 130 times, carrying over 350 people into space and travelling more than half a billion miles, more than enough to reach Jupiter.

Designed to return to Earth and land like a giant glider, the shuttle was the world's first reusable space vehicle. More than all of that, though, the shuttle program expanded the limits of human achievement and broadened our understanding of our world.

Authentic signatures of all 35 Astronaut
Candidates Selected in January 1978

 

 

This is a collection unto itself.  Each Astronaut Candidate on this official NASA litho has hand signed by his/her photo square.  Imagine time, effort and perhaps luck it must have taken to accumulate these 35 signatures on a single NASA litho.  Names such as Bluford, Fisher, Griggs, McNair, Onizuka, Resnik, Ride, Scobee and the list goes on.

 

This signed litho is professionally framed using museum quality materials and comes ready to hang on your wall.  The frame itself is a silver finished wood measuring 13.5" x 15.5".  The NASA litho is the usual 8"x10" and matted under glass.

 

This hand signed litho would make a wonderful addition to any serious space memorabilia collection.

Photo mounted on matt board containing 29 signatures dedicated to "Dot" who I would liken to the "Den Mother" for the Astronauts while at KSC.  You can see from the scan that some of the signers used first name only while others signed in full.  Among the signatures here are Carl Meade, Sam Gema, Sonny Carter (first name only), Jim Voss, Frank Newman, Jay Apt, David Low, Blaine Hammond, Ken Cameron, Jan Davis, Mark Brown, Bruce Melnick, Mae Jemision, Kathy Thornton, Jeff Cardenas, Frank Culbertson and a few others I can not identify.

 

The matt measures 16" x 20" and the mounted photo measures 13.5" x 10.75".  Is in excellent condition.
