Description


Scott Carpenter’s Mercury-Atlas 7 preliminary flight plan, nine pages, 10.5 x 8, dated March 29, 1962, marked on the front cover in pencil in his own hand: “Carpenter, Master.” The plan features a step-by-step breakdown of events for the flight of the Aurora 7 spacecraft, from “lift-off” to “4th orbit retro-sequence time,” with seven of the pages featuring pencil annotations by Carpenter in the “Comments” section; this document was distributed for the very purpose of soliciting comments from the Aurora 7 pilot for inclusion in the final version. In fine condition. Accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Farthest Reaches owner Stephen Hankow, who affirms that this manual derives from personal archives of Scott Carpenter.
