Thanks to NSA, Dave and Skier for sharing your collections. My former father-in-law had his on display at his home in Santa Maria where he ended his career in the 80's working for North American at Vandenberg. He was in at the beginning of our aerospace effort and my first wife has pictures of herself as a child in a pool at Coco Beach (circa 1953) being carried around on the shoulders of Werner Von Braun! Thanks for the memories.

That's special. I did meet him once but it was at a presentation my Dad took me to when I was in High School. Needless to say I wasn't carried around on his shoulders...

Yep those patches bring back memories for sure. I had mine stashed in a box in the closet and thanks to this thread I had a reason to pull them out The company I worked for made high pressure fittings and seals used on the Space Shuttle. All orders were 100% inspected and had to have a source inspector from Martin Marietta come to or plant and buy it off and they would give us the stickers. I was hoping they would be worth a ton of money to help me retire, but checked googled to see how rich I am, and sadly they're only worth about a buck a peice.

Will U.S.A. ever have a manned space program again? I read that it is not necessary anymore to have humans aboard because robots can do just about everything and it's not worth the risk. Maybe Trump's Space Force will have a cool new shuttle again. I'd be all for it because human space flight inspires us gives us all something to root for and all be on the same team.

This original NRO observation satellite (Key Hole 10, aka MOL/Manned Orbiting Laboratory) was intended to be manned with observers looking at the ground thru telescopes.

They later learned robots are more reliable...

I 'Spaced' it responding to this thread. Those are super stellar collections. I have my collection buried in one of our back-forty sheds and will dig ‘em out sometime.

Kind of off topic: Anybody shop at Norton Sales Google Maps images on Laurel Canyon Blvd? Bestest-Hugest-Junkyard of Industrial/Aerospace equipment. My company had an account there, tried to be there every couple months. When I could, I steered away from the full price industrial, electrical and science catalogs.

I was at Western Filter (now Donaldson) Valencia, CA back in '98-'09 ..made their brochure:

I wasn't a collector like the rest of you. All I have is a Shuttle coffe mug I bought at Marshall SFC in 1986, and the CDR document presentaion for the SRM boosters from late 1987. I though I kept more of the computer FEM models, but managed to lose them.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

I don't have patches or stickers or mugs, but this is a photo of my kids sitting with Tracy Caldwell right before she left for her astronaut training. The picture is sitting in the window of the ISS. Tracy was in my y research group in grad school and use to babysit for me from time to time. Funny thing is that's a picture of a picture of a picture
