Space Astronaut Autographs
From Sally Ride to Scott Kelly, the great astronauts of the last half
century reflect the remarkable scientific advances of the age. They also
reveal a remarkable level of valor, as they embody the bravery necessary to
take giant steps for mankind.
The first class of astronauts in training was inducted in 1959 as the
United States was preparing to orbit the Earth for the first time. The initial
class consisted of seven exceptional candidates, among them the
longstanding figure of John Glenn. As time went on, additional initiates
were added into the stringent training program, which even today still takes
years to complete.
Since the advent of the space program, astronauts have witnessed their
share of triumphs and tragedies from the moon landing to the Space Shuttle
Challenger disaster. Throughout the space program's history, the acclaim for
astronauts has escalated. For many collectors, an astronaut's autograph is the
closest they'll get to space travel.
