Official color NASA publicity photograph of the space shuttle Challenger.
Photograph signed: "Jon McBride", "Bob Crippen", "Sally K Ride" and "Kathryn D Sullivan". Color, 9¾x7¾ overall, image 9x7½ (one surface). Official NASA photograph by Otis Imboden. Imprinted: "Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, Houston Texas" at left margin. Depicts the Challenger 41-G shuttle landing at Kennedy Space Center after its successful October 5-13, 1984 mission. The landing was the second made at KSC. The primary mission of the Challenger 41-G, the 13th shuttle flight, was to deploy the Earth Radiation Budget Satellite as well as make scientific observations and execute outer space refueling maneuvers. The seven-member crew included ROBERT L. "BOB" CRIPPEN, Commander, JON A. McBRIDE, Pilot, SALLY K. RIDE, Mission Specialist, KATHRYN D. SULLIVAN, Mission Specialist, DAVID C. LEESTMA, Mission Specialist, and Canadian MARC CARNEAU and PAUL SCULLY-POWER, Payload Specialists. This was the second mission on which Crippen and Ride participated together, having first flown on the Challenger's second flight, June 18-24, 1983, and the first shuttle flight to include two women on the crew. The mission was Crippen's fourth venture into space; he was also a veteran of the first shuttle mission, having piloted the Columbia on its April 12, 1981 flight. A 1978 NASA astronaut inductee, Ride became the first American woman in space on her 1983 voyage. She would later serve on the Presidential Commission investigating the Challenger tragedy of January 28, 1986. The remaining crew members were making their maiden voyages into space. While executing the 3½-hour Extravehicular Activity (EVA), Leestma and Sullivan conducted the satellite refueling tests, and Sullivan became the first American woman to walk in space. Captain McBride safely piloted the shuttle to and from its destination. Fine condition. Framed in the Gallery of History style: 32x15¼.
