NASA astronaut Donald A. Thomas, Ph.D., a native of Cleveland, Ohio, poses with a Cleveland Browns football helmet and Browns patches in his launch and entry space suit. Thomas carried a Cleveland Browns flag onboard the space shuttle Columbia during the STS-83 Microgravity Science Lab-1 (MSL-1) mission launched on April 4, 1997. The items are now on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
