Offered directly by Buzz Aldrin: a dual-sided page removed from the ‘Launch Vehicle Operations for Support of Space Vehicle Countdown Demonstration Test and Launch Countdown’ manual, used and annotated in green felt tip by NASA test conductor Norm Carlson, 8.5 x 11, signed on the reverse in black ballpoint, “Buzz Aldrin, XI.” Both sides are headed “Apollo/Saturn Launch Operations,” with upper portion listing: “LV CDDT & CD, Vol. 1, Date: June 20, 1969, Revision: 010, Page: 5251.60, Test No.: V-20060, Vol. 1, Vehicle: AS-506.” Carlson has circled or underlined seven commands or responses, added check marks to the first four sequences, and made an “X” in a box identified as “S-IC," the first stage of the American Saturn V rocket. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte. Proceeds benefit Aldrin’s new Human SpaceFlight Institute, a premier think-tank and innovation center.
