There were even plans for a full female STS-crew but it never happened...

Ed, Great pic as I have a few of them signed as well. I was introduced to Monica Golden during the late 90s when visited by her and other closeout suit techs. Later, I was presented with a couple of the same signed photos, which have always been favorites of mine.

Thanks for this look at the folks behind the scenes Ed. These are the unsung heroes of the program - I'd like to see more like this.

That would have been cool, why didn't it happen?

I believe the plan was canceled after the 51-L Challenger accident...

Look forward to the next few photos of Neil Armstrong. Was there any of Sally Ride as well?
