I want to get STS-125 crew members autographs on a launch cover I have and would like to know how, if even possible, to get multiple signings on it if I mail to JSC. Which astronaut on this crew may be the best chance at getting more signers? Has anyone been lucky enough to get multiple signings from one crew through mailing to JSC?

With the exception of Grunsfeld, the STS-125 crew are all good signers through the mail. Michael Good is back in training so he may not respond for some time. As far as getting the entire crew to sign your cover with the help of one astronaut probably comes down to being lucky and good timing.

Thanks for the heads up on the 125 crew. I originally got the cover to mail to Megan McArthur anyway. I'm just going to do that and see what happens. I'll probabaly wait 2 years to get it back if I ask to get a crew signing! Probably too much to ask anyway.

EDIT: Photo uploaded

The 125 crew was good about signing at Family Day at Udvar-Hazy, although I missed Scott Altman's and Mike Good's impromptu signing and Greg Johnson (Ray J) signed on the fly.

Cool poster and cool that you were able to get four of the seven STS-125 crew members to sign it in person. But too bad that Altman, Good and Johnson were elusive. Hopefully, you'll get more opportunities with them in the future.

Thanks! - but I got it printed as an 8x10. Johnson I did not see. Good I did, but we were walking in opposite directions. And Good and Altman later held impromptu signings, which is why I missed them.

Altman had pre-signed lithos, and was also signing for guests tonight (May 25) at the Space Congress' Astronaut Social. Also took time to talk for a few moments with people and pose for photos.

As a coincidence, I had a through-the-mail reply from Scott Altman in the mail. Has been out for quite a while.
