The St. Louis aerospace community is proud to announce that Rose Church, "Flight Nurse to the Astronauts" during the Mercury and Gemini space programs, and space program advocate, has been invited by NASA to be their special guest for the final Space Shuttle launch scheduled for July 8. Below are some recent photos of Rose Church at the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum, where much of her memorabilia is displayed, and some video clips of her reflections on the space program from the early 1960s into the future. The Aero Experience wishes to thank her for her lifetime of service and her generosity to the Greater St. Louis Air & Space Museum.
