One of two prints from artist Kevin Dart's Space Shuttle series celebrating the Challenger and Columbia. These two incredible shuttles and their crews completed 36 successful missions and spent over 300 days in space. Some highlights of their missions included carrying the first woman to space (Challenger) and deploying the Chandra X-Ray Observatory (Columbia).  #spaceship #spaceshuttle #columbia #illustration #prints #KevinDart
