Group Description

I Was There!

Did you ever see a space shuttle launch or land in person? Share photos from your experience in this Flickr group! Your photo may be chosen for temporary display in the “Moving Beyond Earth” exhibition at the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. Photos chosen for the exhibition will also be displayed on the Museum’s website at airandspace.si.edu/exhibitions/moving-beyond-earth/, and you may even get to add the photo to our permanent collection. Photos will be selected by a Museum curator and you will be contacted via Flickr message.

From the first shuttle launch in 1981 to the final landing in 2011, countless people witnessed this important piece of spaceflight history. Show that you were there!

How to Participate:

In particular, please include date(s) (a year or date range is fine), names of people, location, time of day (including relation to the launch or landing event), and your personal reflections or emotional context.

3. Permission to Use: Please be sure to set permissions on your photo to Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons. Your submission of photos to this group is your agreement to grant us permission to use your photo.

5. Don’t Share Anything You Want Kept Private: By submitting content, you waive any privacy expectations you may have with regard to your submission. If the Smithsonian selects your submission for inclusion in its exhibit, the Smithsonian will make the submission, in whole or part, available to the general public at its premises and online. You acknowledge that commentary with which you disagree may become associated with your submission.

6. Be Responsible: You are solely responsible for your submission and any consequences of submitting it. You agree to indemnify and hold the Smithsonian harmless against any claims asserted by any third parties that allege your submission violates their rights, or from any breaches by you of these terms of use. You shall be responsible for any costs incurred by the Smithsonian for defense or settlement of third-party claims, including but not limited to reasonable attorney’s fees.

7. Other Rules Apply Too: You are at least 13 years of age and your submission complies with Flickr’s terms of use and applicable rules or guidelines. Any information Smithsonian collects from this site will be subject to www.si.edu/privacy.
