Details: This poster shows the Columbia space shuttle touching down. Its back wheels are on the ground, but the front wheel is not down yet. It is landing on a flat, dirt area, and it is kicking up dust as it is landing. In the background is a bright, clear blue sky.
Space Shuttle Columbia (NASA Orbiter Vehicle Designation: OV-102) was the first spaceworthy space shuttle in NASA's orbital fleet. Its first mission, STS-1, lasted from April 12 to April 14, 1981. On February 1, 2003, Columbia disintegrated during re-entry over Texas, on its 28th mission; all seven crew members aboard perished.
This poster is usually printed with a thin white edge border.
