Frank Borman Signed Earth Orbit Chart

Appealing color Apollo Earth Orbit (AEO) chart for Apollo mission 8, 41.5 x 13.5, signed in the vicinity where Apollo 8’s departure orbit track ended in black felt tip, “Frank Borman, Apollo 8 Commander.” Dated November 26, 1968, this first edition chart is labeled in the lower left corner, “Sheet 3 of 3, contains revolution 3, for December 1968 launch dates,” and depicts various tracking lines for the Apollo spacecraft, USB command capability, and translunar injection burn initiation and termination. Rolled and in fine condition. This piece presents an exceedingly interesting signing location denoting where humans left Earth orbit for the first time in history; Apollo 8 orbited three times after launch, then fired the rockets that sent them to the moon. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
