Space Shuttle astronaut Donald Peterson celebrates his 80th birthday today. Selected as an astronaut in 1967 for the MOL program, he then became a NASA astronaut in 1969. He flew as a mission specialist on STS-6 in 1983. Happy birthday Col. Peterson!

Wow! Happy Birthday.

I postmarked a cover in South Bend the night that the four MOL astronauts were named, sent it off for an autograph and imagine how surprised I was when it came back signed by all four! Happy Birthday from an always-grateful collector!
