This mural is painted on a 1.2 million gallon water tank on the grounds of the Space Murals Museum, a small private air and space museum located near Organ, New Mexico. The mural depicts the history of the U.S. space program from the early flights of the X-15 to the fatal accident of the Challenger Space Shuttle. The mural also includes the names of several of the flight teams.
