Description


Flown one-inch long section of lunar surface safety line, carried on the surface of the moon during the Apollo 14 mission, presented to NASA employee Stephen T. Dunham. Swatch is laminated to a 3.25 x 2.75 presentation card reading “Presented in appreciation of your role in Apollo 14’s success. This small portion of the lunar surface safety line was carried by the astronauts on the moon’s surface February 5–6, 1971.” The card also shows a picture of the liftoff of the Apollo 14 mission, and the names and dates of the participants, Alan B. Shepard, Jr., Edgar D. Mitchell, and Stuart A. Roosa. In fine condition. The Lunar Surface Safety Line was a 100-foot long cord designed to be used in an emergency to allow one astronaut to pull another to safety. Despite the overall 100-foot size of the line, very few examples appear on the market. RRAuction COA.
