This incredible photograph was personally signed by astronaut Bruce McCandless II on March 23, 2014 in London. It shows McCandless in 1984 making the first ever untethered free flight using the Manned Maneuvering Unit (MMU). McCandless was first selected as an astronaut in 1966 and was the Capsule Commander (CAPCOM) on the Apollo 11 space mission, communicating directly with Neil Armstrong. His first Space Shuttle mission was STS-41-B, when Challenger launched from Kennedy Space Center, Florida, on February 3, 1984. It was on this mission that he made this first untethered space walk. On his second Space Shuttle mission, STS-31 (A five-day Discovery flight, launched on April 24, 1990), the crew deployed the Hubble Space Telescope from their record-setting altitude of 380 miles (612 km). In total, McCandless logged over 312 hours in space, including four hours of MMU flight time.
