LIBERTY BELL 7 SPACE COVERS

LibertyBellSpace@cfl.rr.com

This list is composed of Space Shuttle related covers. The Space Shuttle is truly a remarkable vehicle. It is part rocket, part spacecraft, and part glider. It was the workhorse of the US space program for 30 years. With the program's fleet of 5 Orbiters, there were 135 Space Shuttle flights accomplishing goals such as launching satellites, repairing satellites, earth observations, astronomical observations and studies of long-term life in space. The construction of the International Space Station may be the crowning achievement for the Space Shuttle program.  There are numerous event covers available for the various Space Shuttle flights.  Now that the program is complete, it might be time to start that Space Shuttle collection.
