Description


Large, flown Target of Opportunity (TOO) Map, carried on board Apollo 9 in 1969. This second edition map measures 39.5 x 10 and is labeled in the lower right, “Targets of Opportunity Earth Flight Chart (AET) Apollo 9 Mission.” This map shows the 10 principal areas of photography for the EOS65 Multispectral Terrain Photography Experiment, the one formal scientific experiment aboard the mission. As a photographic dress rehearsal for Landsat, this critical and highly successful experiment provided the global scientific community the first simultaneous satellite photography of the earth’s surface. The photography consisted of 372 photographs of identical surface locations as indicated on the TOO map, taken simultaneously by a four-camera Hasselblad assembly mounted in the Apollo spacecraft window. Map is signed in green felt tip, “Flown aboard Apollo 9, Jim McDivitt CDR.” Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from McDivitt which states “I certify that this Target of Opportunity map was flown onboard Apollo 9 on her flight from March 3-13, 1969.” In fine condition, with several vertical storage folds. Rare and one-of-a-kind. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
