#430 - Apollo 11 Estimate: $200+

Rare official NASA public relations contingency plan for Apollo 11, numbered 1 of 100 and belonging to Public Relations Director Lt. Col. Walter Pennino, 49 pages, 8 x 10.5, July 1969. The significant document outlines NASA's public response in case of disaster during Apollo 11, up to and including the deaths of the crew in various scenarios; given the sensitive content, all 100 copies had to be accounted for. It includes various contingencies and risk assessments for "Certain Loss of Crew" and "Possible Loss of Crew," in events like space vehicle breakup, failure of the Earth landing system, overturning on lunar surface, explosion on pad, fire in spacecraft, Lunar Module control system failures, and incapacitated crewman on the lunar surface. An addendum provides suggested statements to be in the event of crew fatalities from public officials, including those from the president and vice president. In very good to fine condition, with light creasing to the first page, some pages detached from the staple, and general handling wear.
