Skylab was the first space station the United States launched into orbit, and the second space station ever visited by a human crew. The 100 ton
space station was in Earth's orbit from 1973 to 1979, and it was visited by crews three times in 1973 and 1974. It included a laboratory for studying
the effects of microgravity and the Apollo Telescope Mount solar observatory.

Viking Lander - Vintage B/W Glossy - NASA Photo ID: 75-H-463

Photo:  8 x 10 in excellent condition on a fiber based paper with purple NASA
detailed text on reverse.

Description:  This is artist Don Davis' conception of the Viking Mars lander as it
heads for touch down on the Martian surface at the prime landing site, Chryae,
Sun. Parachute in left background carries the aeroshell from which the lander
detaches at a distance of about 20,000 feet from the surface. The Mars landing
will culminate a 704-million-kilometer (440-million-miles) journey from Earth
which is scheduled to begin with launch on August 11, 1975.  A second Viking
will be launched 10 days later.
Viking Lander - Vintage B/W Glossy - NASA Photo ID: 75-H-462

Photo:  8 x 10 in excellent condition on a fiber based paper with purple NASA
detailed text on reverse.

Description:  This is artist Don Davis' conception of events some 20,000 feet
above the Martin surface as the Viking lander 9enclosed in a aeroshell) heads
for a touch down on the plains of Chryae about July 4, 1976. After parachute
deployment, the Viking lander detaches from the aeroshell and proceeds to a
soft landing on the Martian surface, using small rockets for braking and
maneuvering. The view is to the south.  The bright star above the aeroshell is
Fomalhaut. Capricorn is in the sky at right.  The Mars landing will culminate a
704-million-kilometer journey from Earth which is scheduled to begin with launch
on August 11, 1975.  A second Viking will be launched 10 days later.
NASA - Vintage Color Artists Concept Photo - Orbiting Solar Observatories

Photo:  8 x 10 in excellent condition on a fiber based paper with repeating "A
KODAK PAPER" watermarks on reverse.

Description:  The Orbiting Solar Observatories, developed for NASA's Goddard
Space Flight Centre, were designed primarily as stabilized platforms for
solar-oriented scientific instruments. The OSOs permitted the first extended
study of the sun (from above the earth's filtering atmosphere) with accurate
positioning. Experiments on the satellites studied the sun, flares and other solar
activities, X-ray, gamma and ultraviolet radiation and radiation from extra-solar
sources.  The 440-pound OSO-1 spacecraft will attempt to measure ultra-violet,
gamma and X-ray radiations from the sun. This spacecraft was successfully
launched into earth orbit on 7 March 1962 by the Thor-Delta 301 booster with the
Delta #8 second stage from Launch Complex 17 Pad A at the Cape.
