ASTRONAUT MEMORIAL SUNDAY, JANUARY 29, 2023 AT 1:00 PM AT SANDPOINT PARK, TITUSVILLE
The annual Astronaut Memorial Ceremony for the 17-crew members of Apollo 1, Challenger and Columbia who perished in America’s space program will be conducted Sunday Jan. 29 at 1 pm EST at Sand Point Park in Titusville, Florida.
Shuttle astronaut, spacewalker and artist Nicole Passonno Stott will be the keynote speaker. The public is invited to attend this reverent and patriotic ceremony that honors the lives and sacrifice made by these pioneers of NASA’s manned space program.
The annual remembrance is hosted by the City of Titusville Flag & Memorial Committee and the American Space Museum. The Titusville Garden Club provides the flowers for this honorable ceremony.
The event will be broadcast on the social media platforms on Facebook Live and YouTube of the American Space Museum.
On the 20th anniversary of the Columbia tragedy, the ceremony welcomes representatives of the Israeli Embassy to honor hero astronaut Ilan Ramon.
The event includes a keynote address, patriotic songs, a host of city and county dignitaries, participation from the Knights of Columbus, the Civil Air Patrol, a 21-gun salute and placement of flowers on the 17 plaques at the park honoring the fallen space travelers.
Nicole Stott flew aboard STS-128 in August 2009 to the International Space Station, returning in November 2009 on STS-129. She then flew on the last mission of Orbiter Discovery, STS-133 in March 2011, accumulating 103 days in space and one spacewalk during her NASA career. Stott, an artist, created a watercolor in space, and has become an advocate of Space-Healing-Art through her Space for Art Foundation in St. Petersburg, Florida.
Stott has written a critically acclaimed book that offers solutions to the global climate crisis: “Back to Earth: What Life in Space Taught Me About Our Home Planet–And Our Mission To Protect It.”
