Special Access At Astronaut Scholarship Event


More than 25 astronauts and “space icons” will be on hand to greet guests, pose for photos and (for a fee) sign memorabilia Nov. 7-9 at the Kennedy Space Center’s Visitor Complex in conjunction with the Center’s Space & Air Show. The Astronaut Scholarship Foundation (ASF) is hosting the Astronaut Autograph and Memorabilia Show and the Blue Angels will headline the flight display on Nov. 8. Visitors can involve themselves in auctions for astronaut memorabilia, behind-the-scenes tours hosted by veteran astronauts, and even dinner with the astronauts by purchasing special ticket packages to benefit the ASF. The Foundation funds nineteen $10,000 scholarships each year and pricing for this event ranges from $100 to $350. Expected among the 25 astronauts are well-recognized names including Buzz Aldrin, Scott Carpenter, Gene Cernan, Charlie Duke, Hoot Gibson, Jim Lovell, Edgar Mitchell, Dave Scott and Al Worden to name a few.
