Black and white publicity photograph of Judy Resnik standing by a model of the Space Shuttle orbiter.
NASA Photograph signed: "Judy Resnik". B/w, 8x10 overall, image 6¼x9½ (one surface). Lengthy caption, dated 1978, on verso, in part: "Astronaut Candidate Judith A. Resnik...stands by a model of the Space Shuttle orbiter...." Judy Resnik (1949-1986), the first Jewish astronaut, first flew as a mission specialist on STS 41-D, which launched from the Kennedy Space Center, Florida on August 30, 1984. This was the maiden flight of the orbiter Discovery. During this seven-day mission, the crew successfully activated the OAST-1 solar cell wing experiment, deployed three satellites and operated the CFES-III student crystal growth experiment and the photography experiments using the IMAX motion picture camera. On the morning of January 28, 1986, 72 seconds after liftoff, the second in a series of NASA's manned orbiting space shuttles exploded. Resnik and six fellow Challenger STS 51-L crew members were killed. In the 25-year history of the NASA Programs, three tragedies have occurred: the first claimed the lives of three astronauts during a launch pad fire; the second, the catastrophe of Challenger - one day after the nineteenth anniversary of Apollo 1; and the third, the explosion of Columbia STS-107 killing all seven astronauts, 16 minutes from home. Fine condition.
