Description


Rare flown 20.5 x 10.5 overview schematic for Fuel Cell 3 of CSM Odyssey, carried into lunar orbit during the Apollo 13 mission, signed and flight-certified in black ballpoint, "Flown to the moon on Apollo 13, Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP” and “James Lovell, CDR Apollo 13.” The schematic bears an affixed tab to the right side, "Fuel Cell," and diagrams the connections and pathways for Fuel Cell 3, with upper left showing a small overview of the EPS Radiator Location. In fine condition. Responsible for generating the CSM’s electrical power by combining hydrogen and oxygen into water, the fuel cells of an Apollo CSM are of the utmost importance to mission success and crew survival, a distinction which makes this flown Apollo 13 schematic so tremendous; Fuel Cell 3 was one of two fuel cells that quickly failed following the catastrophic explosion of a service module oxygen tank.
