NASA memories land at Leatherby Libraries

The model that engineers imagined when designing the Orbiting Geophysical Observatory. Photo/Lofty Ambitions

In a quiet corner of Leatherby Libraries is a handful of historic artifacts from the shelves of NASA, which is thinning out some of its relics and making them available to museums and universities.

So how did a 1/100th scale Space Shuttle, an Orbiting Geophysical Observatory (OGO), and a Nimbus weather satellite come to rest at Chapman University? Read all about it, as they say, in
Lofty Ambitions
, a blog written by Anna Leahy, Ph.D., associate professor, Wilkinson College, Department of English, and director of
Tabula Poetica
, and Douglas Dechow, Ph.D., associate librarian at
Leatherby Libraries
