Space Shuttle Press Kits

NASA produced Mission Press Kits for all shuttle flights except those dedicated to the Department of Defense flights. These kits serve as the foundation for the materials in this section.

PLEASE NOTE*: the data was re-keyed, typographical errors corrected, and the entire series reformatted for style consistency. All graphics from the original press kits have been scanned and are included. Additions to the original press kit data include: crew mission insignias that include official NASA descriptions and photo numbers; crew photos with NASA descriptions and photo ID numbers to the "biography" sections; a graphic showing all shuttle flights through STS-111 have been added to the final page of each kit; and for STS-1 through STS-4, scans of the original color covers have been included.

The documents have been exported to individual Adobe Acrobat PDF files for easy searching and viewing. You will need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these files.
