Hi All,
I'm sending out a number of photos to be signed by Apollo astronauts this week, and I'd like to know what each astronauts proper title is i.e. the appropriate rank for the ones from a military background. Similarly I'd appreciate knowing which civilians are Mr. or Dr. or anything else.

ASTP STAFFORD has the rank of US Air Force GENERAL !
Some of the Skylab guys were Colonels in the US Navy ?

Hi Matt,
Try using the search feature on this site. It's been rearranged a bit, but they're all in there somewhere. There is a short bio on each one there.

Hi Matt -

not wanting to be advertising, but do you happen to have a copy of Jürgen's address list ? I got my most recent one yesterday. It lists every astronaut and cosmonaut including the current rank (as far as Jürgen knows).

Cheers, Kirsten
