Souvenir of America's First Space Flight

Space-001 The card present an "X" shaped piece of metal, with a residual coating of the launch gantry's red paint, attached alongside a photo of Juno I on the pad and a description of the history behind the small fragment. The title "Souvenir of America's First Satellite" stretches along the top of the cards. "The material that is on there is from a mesh screen that used to cover and surround the elevator that was used to go up and down the gantry.” Credit: L.M. “Roy” Reitter
