    About this item

    These are rare NASA QUALIFIED U.S. AIR FORCE COMMAND ASTRONAUT WINGS  to earn the Astronaut badge, the military officer must complete all required training and participate in a space flight more than fifty (50 mi.) miles above the Earth. The Fédération Aéronautique Internationale defines space flight as more than one hundred (100 km) kilometers (62 mi.) from Earth, a definition abided by every country, except the U.S., who argue that the outer space boundary is at the fifty (50 mi.) mile (80 km) mark.

    Eight USAF and NASA pilots have qualified for the Astronaut badge by flying the sub-orbital X-15 rocket spaceplane. Two pilots entered space in the sub-orbital Scaled Composites SpaceShipOne rocket spaceplane. All other men and women awarded the Astronaut badge earned it traveling to outer space in non-winged rockets or the orbital Space Shuttle.

    These rare US AIR FORCE NASA WINGS are originals, hallmarked on reverse V-21-N the maker is Vanguard USA an authorized US Government manufacturer. They measure 79.mm or just over 3 ".
