The Kennedy Space Center Space Mirror Memorial was erected to pay tribute to the American astronauts that gave their lives to the quest of space exploration. The crews of the Apollo I and space shuttles Challenger and Columbia are engraved in the mirror-finished surface of the memorial. Sunlight projects through the names appearing to emblazon them against a reflection of the sky.
