The final Space Shuttle mission is scheduled for lift off (weather pending) tomorrow, July 8th, from Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The thirty year era of the Space Shuttle fleet began on April 12, 1981 with the launch of Columbia during the Reagan Administration.
To set the marvel mode for the Space Shuttle fleet we’re sharing this video clip from 1981, Space Shuttle: Mission to the Future, created by the U.S. Information Agency via the National Archives.
And to celebrate the historic and ongoing vision of NASA, Our Presidents is counting down to our own launch of Moonshot Mondays. Each week we’ll be featuring space-related holdings from the Presidential Libraries. What better way to start a Monday than posts on presidents and space exploration?
