Some items belonging to G. David Low, including a training suit and photos have been donated to Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center for a future space exhibit.
Former Weirton Mayor Mike Andochick, who served from 1971 to 1979, visited the Weirton Area Museum and Cultural Center Jan. 22, donating several items, including a training suit and photographs that belonged to astronaut G. David Low, who was married to Andochick's daughter Joann.

Low, who died after a battle with cancer in 2008, flew missions on Columbia in 1990, Atlantis in 1991 and Endeavor in 1993, logging more than 700 hours in space, including a six-hour space walk.

The materials will be used in a future space exhibit at the museum.

All times are CT (US)
