The dedication wall opposite the Space Mirror. It reads
Whenever mankind has sought to conquer new frontiers, there have been those who
have given their lives for the cause. This astronauts' memorial, dedicated May
9 1991, is a tribute to American men and women who have made the ultimate
sacrifice believing the conquest of space is worth the risk of life.
