Bill Anders

Color 10 x 8 NASA photo of NASA’s Group 3 astronauts, with Anders seated in the front row holding a model of the Command Module, signed in black felt tip, “Enjoyed working with you on the SESL ORI—Bill Anders.” Photo also bears pre-printed signatures of all the astronauts in the lower border. In fine condition, with a bit of light contrast to portion of sentiment. The SESL (Space Environment Simulation Laboratory) was built at Johnson Space Center in 1965 to conduct thermal-vacuum testing for the Apollo command and service modules, Apollo lunar modules, and other space craft, and ORI stands for Operational Readiness Inspection. Photo comes from the estate of a quality engineer with whom Anders worked on SESL soon after he joined the astronaut program. Anders is the most difficult autograph to obtain of all living astronauts! Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
