June 27 – July 4, 1982
Henry W. Hartsfield Jr., Thomas K. Mattingly II
STS-4's cargo consisted of nine scientific experiments provided by students from Utah State University and a classified U.S. Air Force missile launch-detection system. Mattingly gained previous flight experience onboard Apollo 16, while STS-4 served as Hartsfield’s first flight with the program. The astronauts were greeted by President Ronald Reagan and his wife after performing the first shuttle landing on a concrete runway at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
