JP Aerospace will send your logo to the edge of space for as low as $400.

A Japanese TV program took advantage of the program to send a chair into space and video taped it for an episode!

And Samsung sent their Galaxy phone into near orbit. Very cool!
The Jefferson Space Museum to go to the edge of space, thanks to the good folks at JP Aerospace. For a small fee, they will send your logo to the edge of space, and send you back pictures. For a few dollars more, you can send up practically anything (heck, look on their website -- someone sent up a chair! And Samsung sent up a phone!) Very cool. Astronaut Tom will very soon be a real astro! (Well, almost...) It also supports a good cause, in that each sponsored ad supports student experiements that fly up on the mission. 4 missions are slated to launch come March 31st. The Jefferson Space Museum will be along for the ride: we've booked our spot. How about you?

Just added the above wonderful piece to our growing space-art collection. This is a painting by an emerging NJ artist named John Darvie, who paints under the name Apollo1. You can visit his gallery, Apollo1Gallery to see his amazing work. This painting is an acrylic/oil work, measuring 14" x 18". It pays homage to the crew of Apollo 1 (Grissom, White, Chaffee) who perished in the Apollo 1 fire in 1967. It's a wonderful addition to our space art collection, and I encourage all to go to John's site, and support his work.

We are honored to announce that Euromoney magazine has published a short little blurb article, both online and in their January, 2012, edition, about the Jefferson Space Museum. What a thrill! Euromoney has a circulation of around 140,000, and is the world's most prestigious monthly finance magazine read by central bankers, CFO's, CEO's, and the like. And I just love the title: "Buy me to the moon."

For those of you who have not visited our gallery of space flown $2 bills -- please do so by visiting the main museum website by clicking here.  Enjoy! (And don't forget to stop at the gift shop! I highly recommend the note pads....very cool.)
