The Gallery Wall

Each frame on the Astronaut Gallery Wall depicts the official crew portrait for each NASA human spaceflight mission. The collection begins with the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo programs that took men to the moon and brought them back safely to Earth. The portraits continue through Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz, the Space Shuttle Program, Shuttle-Mir and the International Space Station expedition crews.

Portraits featuring a black band honor NASA astronauts who lost their lives while on a mission or during training.
