Photographer's Note

This is one of the statues outside the Gerald R. Ford Museum. According to Google Maps, it is called Weightlessness. According to a news article, it is called Man in Space. Well, with its reflection, that makes two men in space.

Whatever it is named, the sculpture commemorates Gerald Ford's support of the space program and was dedicated in 1986. It was requested by President Ford, and is the work of Judson Nelson of New York. It depicts a weightless astronaut leaving a spaceship. This 3,000-pound sculpture was moved to its new location in 2011. Before 2011, it was closer to the entrance, where the current Gerald Ford statue is (see workshop photo).
