Fantastic limited edition marble presentation honoring NASA's numerous manned space flight programs, 26 x 20, numbered 52/3000. The laser-etched marble display by artist W. E. Tipton features several historic moments, astronauts, and spacecraft over the decades, including: the Mercury 7 crew, Ed White's first American spacewalk, the men of Apollo 1 and Apollo 11, the moon landing and lunar rover, the docking of the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project, Skylab, a Space Shuttle, and capsules from the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs. Mounted and framed to an overall size of 37 x 31. In fine condition. Although the edition states that "3000" were made, in truth only 100 were produced, making this presentation a particularly scarce and desirable item that handsomely covers NASA's first 20 years of manned exploration. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
