    NASA beauty pageants - photos

    NASA (and/or various divisions thereof) held NASA beauty pageants in the 1950s through 1970s, and crowned various female NASA employees as Miss NASA, Miss Guided Missile, Lunar Landing Festival Queen, Queen of Outer Space, etc. Not exactly on the front page of NASA.gov, but it is confirmed in a 2012 speech here by NASA's former Deputy Administrator Lori B. Garver, who, unlike the pageant winners, did not seem pleased with the practice.

    1968 Miss NASA:


    1959 Queen of Outer Space:
