Saturday (8/9/14) we had our move crew at Space View Park to raise the Shuttle stainless. Went without a hitch. Thanks to our chief engineer, Warren Lackie. and the move crew. Will try and get them all down. Karan, Murphy, Eric, Dan, Glenn, Chriss, Bill, Mike, Frank, Mayor Tulley, and obviously one or two I forgot.
Many thanks to Jeff Grey of Vector Works who is always there for us. The stainless was off loaded from the transporter to one of his trailers until we could get it to the monument site. The crane is the same one, and driver, we used for Apollo. Rented it from the same company in Cocoa.
Notice the black granite base on the monument. The story board panels will be installed over the next couple of weeks.
The pylon is the one from the TFNG that Jon Mcbride arranged with his class. The third side is for the Columbia and Challenger crews.
We are all excited and proud to have this milestone accomplished
Monument dedication is scheduled for October 18th, 2014. More to follow when we get the details worked out.

U. S. Space Walk of Fame FoundationThe U.S. Space Walk of Fame Foundation (USSWOFF) is a non-profit organization comprised of community leaders, aerospace industry officials and current and retired space workers. The organization was formed in the early 90's. A partnership was created between the Foundation and the City of Titusville to create a riverwalk, designated as The Space Walk of Fame, a major component of a redevelopment master plan designed for Titusville's urban waterfront. In addition to the outdoor space displays , the riverwalk provides one of the area's most spectacular viewing spots to witness a space shuttle launch.
USSWOFF is dedicated to paying tribute to and honoring the space workers who made space travel and exploration possible. As part of the Space Walk project, funds have been raised to construct the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo monuments. The Mercury and Gemini monuments have been completed. Work has begun on the Apollo monument. The Space Shuttle monument will be the fourth exhibit to grace the riverwalk.
Engravings are sold through the Foundation enabling space workers, or their families, to honor the space worker by having his/her name placed on the appropriate space program monument/exhibit for posterity.
For historical purposes, the Foundation is building a database containing the names of space workers and their employers. Presently, there are over 10,000 names. USSWOFF has received an oral history grant and is presently taking oral histories from many of the men and women associated with our early space program
"Only by preserving history can we encourage America's youth to continue reaching for the stars."
