    Space Shuttle Columbia (STS-3) Crew-Signed Large Color Launch Photo Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Jack Lousma., Signed and Certified. A beautiful and dramatic 10.75" x 13.75" color glossy launch photo (NASA image "S82-28747" as hand-notated on the verso) mounted to a 16" x 20" matboard. It is captioned "Columbia III - March 22-30-1982" beneath the image by Lousma and signed by both crewmembers: "Jack Lousma" and "Gordon Fullerton". This was the third orbital test flight of the Space Shuttle program, an extremely successful mission with a full slate of tests and scientific experiments. Because of inclement weather at the Edwards AFB primary landing site, STS-32 touched down at White Sands, New Mexico, the only shuttle flight to ever land there. Lousma has signed on the verso: "From my personal collection./ Jack Lousma". Excellent condition save for a couple of small, light areas of soiling on the mat and some tape on the verso.
