I wonder to know who is the best contact at NASA Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center to get official individuals/crew autographed photographs?

There seems to be many contacts and I'm trying to figure out which is the best one to contact by letter/emails.

Write to the crews/astronaut involved. It's still the best way to obtain a real autograph. If you try to contact some central authority you're most likely to end up with an autopen.

I was wondering, has anyone had success in obtaining astronaut autographs (not autopens) from faxing the Johnson Space Center? I was thinking of using this method if it's "more preferred" than snail mail.

I'm still holding out on getting back an autograph from Dr. Magnus and COL Boe, both were sent in September 2012.

I'm still waiting for a request from Boe and Virts, both sent out in June 2013.

I'm guessing they are very popular!

Magnus, however, is no longer with NASA. I don't know how she is by mail but she is great in person.

Hart, as always thanks for the valuable information. When I wrote the letter to her she was on the active list so I'm guessing it's in limbo since her change. I'm assuming that NASA wouldn't have forwarded it. Thanks again.

Magnus is executive director of American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, so although she may not be on the speaker list of an AIAA event, Magnus may be there in that capacity.

Thanks! I'll contact them and hopefully I'll be able to make contact.
