Poster, NASA, Manned Flight Awareness
- This poster depicts a drum and drum sticks, with the text reading, “Drum it in! Craftsmanship.” The poster’s simple graphics harken back to World War II posters created to promote quality work.
- NASA’s Manned Flight Awareness, a program begun in 1963, and later renamed Space Flight Awareness, created posters to enhance employee motivation for job quality and flight safety within NASA and its contractors.
- Following a tragic fire that killed three Apollo astronauts on January 27, 1967, NASA worked with the Boeing to develop a program to uncover deficiencies in the Apollo program. The Technical Integration and Evaluation, or TIE, program helped improve communication at NASA, and NASA vigorously renewed its efforts to instill quality work and job safety within the program to prevent future disasters.
