Astronaut Scholarship Foundation release
Astronaut Robert Crippen Private Signing

The time has come to have your space treasures signed by one of America's heroes!

The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF) is hosting an exclusive mail-in signing this February with the first Space Shuttle pilot, astronaut Robert Crippen!

Don't miss out on this rare opportunity! Break out those covers, models, patches and flown items - just about anything that can be mailed to the office - or choose from one of several Crippen portraits available in the Astronaut Store for this hero to sign!

Once received, your item will be logged, tagged and stored in a secure location until the signing.

All items must comply with the following:

  • Include copies of the ASF Order Form and Item Description Form

  • Reach the ASF office no later than Wednesday, February 20.
Proceeds will benefit the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation's mission of providing scholarships to exceptional college students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering and math fields.

Crippen became an astronaut in September 1969. He was a member of the astronaut support crew for the Skylab 2, 3 and 4 missions, and for the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project mission. He then served as pilot for the first orbital test flight of the Space Shuttle program (STS-1, April 12-14, 1981) and was the commander of three additional shuttle flights: STS-7, June 18-24, 1983; STS-41C, April 6-13, 1984; and STS-41G, October 6-13, 1984. Crippen served as the director of NASA's John F. Kennedy Space Center from January 1992 to January 1995 and was inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame on November 10, 2001. He currently serves on the ASF Board of Directors.

$100 base fee-- how times have changed! But some of the funds do go to ASF, which is a wonderful charity that funds scholarships for college students in STEM fields.

All times are CT (US)
