Let me introduce myself.....

My name is Rick Mulheirn. Born in England in December 1957, I was/am very much a child of the space age. At some long forgotten point during the mid sixties I was bitten by "The Space Bug"; a passion for all things related to Manned Spaceflight, inparticular the American space program. Please permit me to share with you my collection of Manned Spaceflight artifacts. I do so as a mark of my respect and admiration for all those men and women who made it possible.......

Family Holiday.

August 2013 and a family holiday of a lifetime. Here are some of my favourite space photos from the trip in no particular order.



 
 

 
 
 
 


 
 

An AWESOME experience.

I finally managed to fulfil an ambition of 45 years standing on May 11th, 2009 when I witnessed first hand the launch of STS-125. Here are just a few of my favourite shots taken from the trip.  Unfortunately, bad weather at The Cape meant Atlantis was waived off to Edwards Air Force Base for the landing.

The Moonwalkers.

Landing on the moon is recorded in many a textbook as mankinds greatest achievement to date. The men that set foot on the lunar surface perceived as the best of the best; men who had "The Right Stuff". In reality any of the astronaut corp were capable, in my opinion, of writing their names in to the history books. Here are signed iconic images of those that did.
