The American Space Museum  (formerly the U. S. Space Walk of Fame Museum) has opened a SPACE WORKERS HALL OF HONOR  to identify anyone who has ever worked in any of our space programs.  This is an online (web-based) recognition dedicating an entire page to each and every worker – past and present – to highlight and acknowledge their service.  If you or a family member had any role at all at any time in our space programs, please log on to www.spacehonors.org and create a page spotlighting them.  This project will help preserve our space history and honor those who made it possible!

“Now that I’m retired, what can I do to help the space program?”
Check out the Photo ID Project
Frank Bryan, who began this as a personal quest to contribute, says: “There are lots of photos of the old rockets and launch pads in the KSC archives showing people who were part of the team, but the official photos provide no names. Twenty years from now no one will know who was there. With our experience, we can add that information for all who come after us.”
With that as a starting point, the NALFL Photo ID Project (PIP) was born. Join in and add your own personal knowledge by “filling in the blanks” on the historic photos for each program conducted at KSC and leave a fitting legacy for our future.

    Hello all,

    I’m a freelance writer at Air & Space magazine, and I’m working on an oral history-style article about the development and construction of the Saturn V rocket. I’m especially interested in “experiential” stories from that time, more than the actual technical work. How things felt, the camaraderie, the pressure; any off-the-beaten-path tales about what it was like to work on that epic challenge.

    I’m wondering if you all at NAL might be able to put me in touch with someone from that time who is still around and might be up for an interview.

    Many thanks in advance,

    Mark Betancourt
