Flown UN Space Treaty entitled “Agreement on the Rescue of Astronauts, the Return of Astronauts and the Return of Objects Launched into Outer Space,” carried aboard CM Endeavour during the Apollo 15 mission. The agreement measures 8 x 5 and is printed with the serial number "S/N 1-15L-009" on the reverse, which is signed below in ballpoint by the missions' Command Module Pilot, "Alfred M. Worden." Includes a signed letter of provenance from Worden, in full: “This is to certify that the following Space Rescue Agreement was carried aboard Apollo 15 during its lunar flight July 26-August 7, 1971: S/N A-15L-009.” Also includes an FDC with a cachet depicting the Apollo 15 mission insignia, signed in black felt tip by Dave Scott, Jim Irwin, and Al Worden. In overall fine condition, with a smudge to Worden's signature on the FDC.

Often referred to as the ‘Rescue Agreement,’ this treaty is an international agreement setting forth rights and obligations of states concerning the rescue of persons in space, and equipment recovered in foreign lands. The agreement, created by a 1967 consensus vote in the United Nations General Assembly, came into force in 1968, and remains in effect today. A historic piece carried around the moon for 74 orbits during Apollo 15.
