Astronaut Addresses


For cosmonaut addresses, click here.

In previous years, you could send both active and retired astronauts autograph requests care of NASA. Today due to the thousands of requests received annually (and the preferences of some of the retired astronauts), the space agency will only respond to requests for the active corps.

Autograph requests for astronauts assigned to upcoming flights or currently in training can be mailed to:

Name of Astronaut
NASA-JSC
Astronaut Office Mail Code CB
2101 NASA Road 1
Houston, Texas 77058-3696

It is not necessary to include return postage or envelope.

NASA maintains a complete list of its active astronauts.



Some of the early astronauts still will reply to autograph requests through the mail. This guide identifies who will, their preferred mailing address and whether they charge.

Unless specifically stated, you must include your own item to be autographed and sufficient postage (usually a self-addressed stamped envelope) for its return to you.

The following astronauts no longer accept requests:

William Anders
Vance Brand
