Astronaut Memorial Gallery


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.

The Astronaut Memorial Foundation

We visited shortly after the death of President Ronald Reagan, so the flags were flying at half-staff.
