Congressional Space Medal of Honor

Astronaut Neil Armstrong received the first Congressional Space Medal of Honor from President Jimmy Carter, assisted by Captain Robert Peterson. Armstrong, one of six astronauts to be presented the medal during ceremonies held in the Vehicle Assembly Building, was awarded for his performance during the Gemini 8 mission and the Apollo 11 mission when he became the first human to set foot upon the moon.

October 1, 1978, was the first time this medal was awarded.  Other recipients on that inaugural date:  Alan Shepard, first American in space (Mercury-Redstone 3); Gus Grissom, commander of the first manned Gemini mission and lost in the Apollo 1 fire; John Glenn, first American in orbit (Mercury-Atlas 6); Frank Borman, commander of first lunar orbit (Apollo 8); and Pete Conrad, first commander of Skylab.

On this day, Mae Jemison became the African-American woman in space! Mae always assumed she would go into space. “I wanted to explore because it was so mysterious,” she says. But as she watched shuttle launches and moon landings, she was disappointed to see a lack of female astronauts. After serving as a Peace corps medical officer in Liberia and Sierra Leone, she applied to be an astronaut. She was aboard space shuttle Endeavour on NASA’s 50th mission. When the shuttle launched on September 12, “I remember having this huge grin on my face,” Mae remembers.
