Apollo launch control panel for use in the firing room at the Kennedy Space Center. The purpose of this panel was to control and monitor the Launch Utility Tower (LUT) swing arm and access platform that supplied ground umbilicals and crew/ground team access to the Apollo Command Module while on the launch pad. Panel measures 19 x 17.5, retains its internal components, and is labeled along the bottom “Command Module.” Top of the panel features seven meters, with a NASA KSC label affixed below each one. The final meter is labeled “Arm Position % Retracted.” Under the meters are two rows of indicator lights and multiple switches which relate to the extending and retraction of one of the umbilical tower’s manual arms. Panel also has three additional rows of indicators lights and switches and a system power light in the lower left. A partial Boeing inspection label is affixed to the upper left edge. In fine condition, with expected wear, a missing power button, and scattered soiling. RR Auction COA.
