DescriptionBruce McCandless II Signed STS-41-B Untethered Spacewalk Color Photo in Framed Display. A 7.75" x 9.75" silk finish color photo of McCandless floating in space above Earth's bright blue horizon in an extravehicular activity (EVA) outside the cabin of the shuttle Challenger during STS-41-B. Matted and framed to an overall 13" x 15". McCandless used a nitrogen-propelled hand-controlled Manned Maneuvering Unit that he helped develop and was the first astronaut to perform an untethered EVA. He has signed in silver felt tip: "Best Wishes - / Bruce McCandless II / STS-41-B". Stunning. Very fine.
