Former NASA astronaut honored with corn field tribute so big it can be seen from space
NASA astronauts deserve all the accolades in the book and then some. The men and women that put their lives on the line in the pursuit of scientific advancement are some truly brave souls, and one of them just received a fantastic tribute in his home state.
Thomas P. Stafford, who was selected as a NASA astronaut in 1962, logged an incredible 21 days in space over his long career. He was part of the second manned mission to orbit the Moon and also commanded the first mission in which the US and then-Soviet space agencies worked together. He finally retired from his NASA post in late 1975, but his remarkable commitment to the space program has given him legendary status. Now he's been immortalized... in corn.
