AstroNotes – Launch the Gift of Inspiration!

Somewhere, a child who dreams of one day traveling into space awaits the inspiration to take the first step on the difficult journey. Perhaps someone else might simply treasure a handwritten, signed greeting from one of the very few in human history who have traveled into Earth orbit. 

A personal astronaut inscription and signature is a valuable and historic collectible, appropriate for any special occasion! 

Your AstroNote will arrive as a custom greeting card with a personal, hand-signed inscription and signature from one of our ASE member astronauts – perfectly sized for framing!

The proceeds from your $35 AstroNote support ASE's Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educational activities world-wide; your support is critical to ASE's mission of inspiring tomorrow’s explorers, scientists and innovative thinkers.

We very much appreciate your support – thank you! If you have any questions, feel free to email us!

"Thanks again for the personal touch, this is really going to make a big impression on our hopeful astronaut!"

"Andrew is really pleased and proud of his birthday greetings from Walt Cunningham. It was the perfect gift for him -- he is a 20-year-old with Asperger's Syndrome and an encyclopedic knowledge of the US space program. He's studying aerospace engineering in college."

"Thank you so much for arranging such a special gift for my son!"

"Thank you again, you've made yet another memorable moment!" S.W.

"I just wanted to say THANK YOU for offering such a wonderful program. I had a AstroNote - inscribed by Scott Carpenter (!) - sent to my wife on her birthday in April… and she was thrilled!" J.S.

"Michael is an active duty Navy Lieutenant who just recently received his wings at Naval Air Station Pensacola. This is a great present for him!"
