Wally Schirra Signed 8×10 Photo NASA Astronaut – COA JSAGo Back
In 1959, Wally Schirra became one of the original seven astronauts chosen for Project Mercury, which was the United States’ first effort to put human beings into space. On October 3, 1962, he flew the six-orbit, nine-hour, Mercury-Atlas 8 mission, in a spacecraft he nicknamed Sigma 7. At the time of his mission in Sigma 7, Schirra became the fifth American and ninth human to travel into space. In the two-man Gemini program, he achieved the first space rendezvous, station-keeping his Gemini 6A spacecraft within 1 foot (30 cm) of the sister Gemini 7 spacecraft in December 1965. In October 1968, he commanded Apollo 7, an 11-day low Earth orbit shakedown test of the three-man Apollo Command/Service Module and the first crewed launch for the Apollo program.
Presented is an 8×10 color photo of Wally Schirra in his uniform. He signed it in blue felt tip (“9”) with the personalization, “To Linda.”
