NASA Exhibition

Special Collections Reading Room, Level 4

Last August millions of Americans donned special glasses and turned to the skies to witness the solar eclipse. The event sparked a distinct intrigue for many. What goes on in space that we don’t usually think about or perhaps isn’t even known yet to scientists?

James Chipman Fletcher would have had some of the answers to those questions. Curiosity and passion were certainly the key ingredients for Fletcher, the two-time Head of NASA who also served as the President of the University of Utah. And, thanks to him and his family, the library’s Special Collections now holds papers and photographs following his career, as well as several detailed models of space crafts and satellites.
