Astronauts Recall Skylab Program at 40th Anniversary Celebration

On July 27, the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation hosted a dinner at the Kennedy Space Center’s Apollo/Saturn V Center celebrating the 40th anniversary of Skylab. The gala featured many of the astronauts who flew the missions to America's first space station.

Six Skylab astronauts participated in a panel discussion during the event, where they spoke about living and conducting groundbreaking scientific experiments aboard the orbiting outpost.

Launched unpiloted on May 14, 1973, Skylab was a complex orbiting scientific laboratory. Three crews of astronauts were sent up to perform microgravity experiments for up to three months in a shirt-sleeve environment. The program also provided information about how humans adapt to work during long periods of weightlessness.
