The names of the U.S. astronauts who gave their lives for space exploration are carved into the face of this polished black granite monument. The beautiful 60 ton structure tracks the movement of the sun through the sky, resulting in an effect that suspends the astronauts' names in the brilliantly reflected sky.
Dedicated in May 1991, the Space Mirror is a high-tech national monument to our fallen heroes. Visited by more than 20 million people, the Space Mirror is a project of The Astronaut Memorial Foundation and was paid for by Florida residents who purchased special Challenger mission automobile license plates.
