John Young 2007 -- Custom Signing

at Novaspace Gallery

John Young was 75 when he finally retired from NASA in 2005, after 42 years. While still at NASA, Neil Armstrong signed freely, but Capt. Young mostly used his autopen machine. His authentic autograph is therefore the rarest of the 12 moonwalkers.

John Young is the astronaut's astronaut. He flew two Gemini missions (including the first, Gemini 3), two Apollo lunar missions (10 & 16) as well as two Space Shuttle missions, commanding both the first flight, STS-1 in 1981, and STS-9 in 1983, both in shuttle Columbia. This will be Capt. Young's only signing this year. He WILL be joining us for a talk and at the banquet at SPACEFEST, but will NOT be signing autographs.

Capt. Young only signs photos and other memorabilia for NOVASPACE.
