This foundation and the associated museum is a tremendous asset to Titusville and central Florida. They have captured so much space history in the form of documents, photographs and actual hardware that anyone interested in space could easily spend the day in their museum. Our only regret is that we do not have more space to display more of the artifacts they have collected. Having already completed memorials to the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs, they are currently working on a similar memorial to the Space Shuttle. This is a remarkable organization.
My 5 year old grandson's favorite place to visit is the US Space Walk of Fame Museum managed by the Foundation membership. Each time we go he can talk for hours about what he learned. It is a wonderful place for me to visit also. The US has a long and proud history of space flight. Thanks to all the men and women who made it all possible and a big job well done by those who manage the US Space Walk of Fame Museum.
I have been involved in manned and unmanned missions at KSC and CCAFS for over 40 years. I also volunteer at the Space Walk of Fame and believe it is an honor to be associated with all the peolpe who have done so much for the Space industry. It is truly a pleasure to help Charlie and his team is telling the story of space.
The U.S. Space Walk of Fame Foundation serves an important role in preserving the history of the United States' space exploration efforts from the perspective of those who made it possible -- the past and present NASA and contractor workforce. Through its museum sharing the workers' stories through their personal artifacts to its series of monuments devoted to honoring and memorializing the people behind the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo and soon space shuttle programs, the Foundation highlights the contributions by these dedicated space veterans to inspire the next and future generations of space workers.
