Frequently Asked Questions
How can new space workers be added to the site?
A user can add a worker profile for themselves, family members or friends by following the instructions here.
There is already an entry for me (or someone I personally know) on the site, how can I take ownership and make edits to it?
A registered user can request ownership of a pre-existing entry by logging into the site, navigating to that worker’s page, clicking the CLAIM THIS PAGE button, and filling out the form that pops up. This will allow our staff to review your claim and transfer ownership of the page over to you if your request is valid.
Is this site just for living space workers?
No, this site is a lasting tribute to all American space workers, living and deceased.
Does it cost anything to create a worker profile page?
No, but donations are appreciated.
How will my personal account information be used?
Why is my information already in the Space Worker Hall of Honor if I didn’t add it myself?
The site began with an initial batch of space worker data taken from information previously collected by the American Space Museum, either through membership signup or the purchase of Space View Park memorial engravings. There is also the chance that you were added by a family member or friend.
How can I remove my worker profile from the site?
Registered users can set the status of unwanted profiles to “Trash”, which will remove them from the public site and earmark them for future deletion.

How can I report a page that contains objectionable content?

How do I add a photo to my page?
