Space Shuttle astronaut Henry Hartsfield celebrates his 80th birthday today. Selected as an astronaut in 1966 for the MOL program, he then became a NASA astronaut in 1969. He flew as pilot on STS-4 in 1982 and as the commander of STS-41-D in 1984 and STS-61-A in 1985. Happy birthday Col. Hartsfield!

A very Happy 80th Birthday to Col. Hartsfield and wishing you many more. The group seven astronauts were talented, and very patient.

A Happy Birthday to the first astronaut I ever met, a fellow philatelist and a true gentleman.
