On Monday, September 17, the Calder Library opened the Suresh Atapattu Space Shuttle Photos Display and Sale, organized by Biomedical & Scholarly Communications, to honor Suresh’s space shuttle photography spanning more than a decade, and to support United Way. Suresh was granted unprecedented access and permission by NASA to document space shuttle processing at Kennedy Space Center. Fifteen studio-quality photographs of Suresh’s amazing space shuttle photos will be on display and prints can be purchased for your personal collection or as gifts during the upcoming holiday season. Other photos will also be available. Biomedical Communications’ graphic designers and photographers will expertly print any photo using archival paper and inks for any standard frame size you choose. All proceeds above the cost of printing will be donated to United Way.


Suresh Atapattu is a Biomedical Engineer and Research Director at the Biomedical Signals and Sensor Laboratory at the UM International Medicine Institute. He received the 2001 Young Investigator Award from the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation for his HRV thesis work at the University of Miami.
