Presented here is an archive of information to help further tell the story of human spaceflight.

This collection of photos and documents represents a consolidation of ongoing research into items carried aboard spacecraft. Pieces of hardware critical to mission success and those carried purely for souvenir purposes provide a rare glimpse into our exploratory past. These souvenirs, often incorporated into compelling presentations, express grattitude for those individuals who tirelessly supported each and every phase of a mission.

I encourage you to send in your stories and images for inclusion. Enjoy your research and time spent preserving a piece of history!
