Amelia Earhart’s scarf to head into space

A scarf worn by Amelia Earhart will be making a journey into orbit with the astronaut grandson of her personal photographer.

Earhart’s scarf accompanying Bresnik on STS-129 is on loan from the Museum of Women Pilots in Oklahoma City, which displays the history of the Ninety-Nines, the international organization of female aviators founded in 1929 by 99 women pilots led by Earhart as president.

“It has the Ninety-Nines’ symbol, the intertwined nines in the center of it,” described Carolyn Smith, chairman of the Ninety-Nines’ Board of Trustees for the museum, of the red and white scarf.
