Description


Charles Conrad’s mustard-color flight suit used during training for Skylab 2, signed on the chest in black felt tip, “My Skylab Trng Suit, Charles Conrad, Jr., Cdr. Skylab I.” The suit bears the Skylab mission patch on the right sleeve, NASA ‘meatball’ logo patch on the right breast, and Conrad’s Velcro name patch on the left, “Charles Conrad, NASA-JSC.” The Kings Point manufacturer’s tag is sewn into the collar area, with a small identification tag below, “Charles Conrad, Jr.” In fine condition, with expected wear from use. After orbiting Earth on two separate Gemini missions and walking on the lunar surface on Apollo 12, Conrad's last mission was as Commander of Skylab 2—the first manned flight of NASA's newly established space station program. Conrad and his crew spent nearly a month in space while repairing the severe damage the Skylab space station suffered at launch. The mission was a success, and Conrad later received the Congressional Space Medal of Honor from President Jimmy Carter for his efforts in salvaging the critically malfunctioning station. As a personally certified flight suit used during Conrad's training for this important mission, this is an excellent post-Apollo item from the accomplished astronaut. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
