Space Shuttle Commander

One of the astronauts outside of the Apollo program I have always admired was Robert Crippen. Crippen was the pilot for the first mission of Space Shuttle Columbia, which was launched on April 12, 1981. Crippen later served as Commander for three additional Space Shuttle missions. Earlier in his career as an astronaut Crippen served as support crew for several Skylab missions as well as Apollo-Soyuz. He epitomizes having ‘The Right Stuff’. Astronauts, as a general rule, infrequently interact with the public, sign autographs, etc. Many of the early astronauts have passed away. With that said can you believe the picture below?!?! Of course this will be hung on the wall at Tranquility Base Arcade.
