For over a half century, the American space program has dazzled us with spectacular achievements, such as the Apollo lunar landings and the Space Shuttle missions. These great accomplishments were made possible by the talented NASA personnel, the support of the American public, and the courage of our astronauts, some of whom gave their lives in the pioneering efforts into space. This Notable Note pays tribute to all persons who have contributed to the success of the US space program as it looks at some of the dermatologic lessons learned along the way.
