Shuttle contractor's 'soft mark' on history: Pin display honors space shuttle team

United Space Alliance is putting a pin in its role in space shuttle history.

In fact, it has put in 135 pins.

The company, which served as NASA's primary contractor for the space shuttle during the second half of the 30-year program, presented a lapel pin collection to Space Center Houston on Wednesday (June 18). The plaque, which also included a flown-in-space U.S. flag, featured one-inch pins for each of the shuttle's 135 missions.

I saw a set of the USA shuttle pin collection at The Space Foundation's Discovery Center in Colorado Springs last week. I'll share photos soon.
