S K Y L A B  3  (SL-4) : Third Manned Skylab Flight


  

America's first experimental space station. Designed for long duration mission, Skylab program objectives were twofold: To prove that humans could live and work in space for extended periods, and to expand our knowledge of solar astronomy well beyond Earth-based observations. Successful in all respects despite early mechanical difficulties, three three-man crews occupied the Skylab workshop for a total of 171 days, 13 hours. It was the site of nearly 300 scientific and technical experiments: medical experiments on humans' adaptability to zero gravity, solar observations, and detailed Earth resources experiments. The empty Skylab spacecraft returned to Earth July 11, 1979 scattering debris over the Indian Ocean and the sparsely settled region of Western Australia.

This image is a perfect example of science and technology, imitating art as the Skylab Saturn IB  rolls toward the launch pad on top of the "Crawler".  I would submit that this is as stunning a photo of an Apollo Rocket making its way to the pad that I've ever seen.  Best of all, Astronaut Gibson has signed in bold black sharpie in awesome contrast to the image.  Plenty of room remains for adding the rest of the flight crew or it can be left exactly as it is.  An amazing signed photograph.....
