STS-4 Crew Greeted by President and Mrs. Reagan at Landing

President and First Lady Reagan share a meeting with Astronauts Thomas K. Mattingly II, right, and Henry W. Hartsfield Jr., after the successful landing of the Space Shuttle Columbia at Edwards Air Force Base. Besides the Columbia, pictures, the new Space Shuttle Challenger and the Enterprise (vehicle used for test flights in the lower atmosphere in 1977), were also present at Edwards AFB. The latter served as a backdrop for the President’s podium from which he made a brief speech.
