Robert Crippen, Hall of Fame Astronaut

Capt. Crippen made four journeys into space, including command of the Challenger in 1983 that included Sally Ride, the first woman in space. Dr. Ride was the Magellan honoree in 1985.

Among his many awards and honors are the Congressional Space Medal of Honor, National Geographic’s Hubbard Medal, and the National Aviation Hall of Fame. Also, Robert is one of our own—a long-time member of the Circumnavigators Palm Beach Chapter. Since 1961, there have been 37 Magellan Awardees, including five astronauts. The Club is very pleased to bestow this honor on Robert Crippen.
