Original one-of-a-kind 14 x 17 X-ray of Neil Armstrong’s PGA Left EVA space suit boot, dated July 7, 1969, only nine days before the launch of Apollo 11. This X-ray was taken at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center as a last minute check to see if any foreign objects were present that could compromise the integrity of Armstrong’s pressure suit, such as broken off needle tips used in the suit fabrication and stitching process. These X-rays were taken and inspected by Jack Weakland, who worked in the NASA x-ray lab from 1968 to 1979, and who stored them during and after the Apollo program. Sometime later the agency determined they were no longer needed and permitted Weakland to keep them. In fine condition. A unique item directly connected to man’s first step on the moon, which shows NASA’s incredible attention to detail on this historic mission. RRAuction COA.
