Program for an STS-51-L memorial held at the Johnson Space Center on January 31, 1986, two pages, 5.5 x 8.5, signed on the front cover in black ballpoint by Neil Armstrong, and in black felt tip by NASA administrators Charles Bolden and William R. Graham, both of whom add later dates. In very fine condition. Armstrong served as Vice Chairman of the Rogers Commission Report, the presidential commission charged with investigating the STS-51-L Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. A unique piece connecting one of NASA's foremost triumphs—landing a man on the moon and returning him safely—to one of its greatest tragedies.
