    Yeah, the astronaut in front is a bit confusing to me, too. I am have been trying to visit an old friend of mine who moved to Michigan for some time now. Hopefully, when I make it, I can visit the G Ford museum; I have heard good things about it.

    I knew that I read somewhere that he helped give NASA it’s start. Here’s a clip from NASA’s tribute to him:

    President Ford, who as a member of the House Select Committee on Astronautics and Space Exploration in 1958 helped draft the original Space Act that gave NASA its charter, was always a stalwart supporter of the space program.”
