The display was created by the non-profit U.S. Space Walk of Fame Foundation composed of community leaders, aerospace industry officials and current and retired space workers.

The foundation is also building a database, currently including more than 10,000 names, of space workers and their employers; and has received a grant to record oral histories from many of the men and women associated with the early US space program.
