Library Display Charts History of Space-Shuttle Program

Space Shuttle model among items on display Fast facts enlighten library patrons Space-related material from the Madigan collection As the U.S. Space Shuttle program comes to a close in the coming months, a Madigan Library display chronicles the ambitious NASA undertaking. Human space flight, astronaut Extra-Vehicular Activities and the Hubble telescope are but a few of the events marking the program’s prestigious history. On exhibit are memorabilia for the upcoming STS-133 flight to the International Space Station, fast facts and an original space-shuttle tile that was acquired through NASA and is one of only 7,000 released to institutions. The display, in the corner case on the library’s first floor, will remain through May 16. Photos by Michael S. Fischer, student photographer
