Description


Flown .5 x .25 swatch of Eastman Kodak Type 3400 Panatomic-X film carried to the lunar surface aboard the Lunar Module Eagle during the historic Apollo 11 mission. The swatch is affixed to a 7.25 x 3.5 presentation certificate signed in ballpoint by Richard W. Underwood, Supervisory Aerospace Technologist at the Johnson Space Center, reading: "The attached film was carried onboard Apollo 11 on the historic flight to the moon, July 16-24, 1969. It was carried to the surface of the moon by the astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin in the Lunar Module 'Eagle' on July 20-21, 1969." The certificate is also annotated along the left edge, "I received this during Apollo 11—Susie Anders." In very good to fine condition, with staining and toning to the presentation sheet, not affecting the film segment. Underwood was responsible for developing the Apollo photographs—in fact, he was the first person to view every photograph from the Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz, and the first 23 space shuttle missions.
