Description


Cable flown to the moon on Apollo 15 and used to connect Scott’s space suit to his Primary Life Support System during extra-vehicular activities on the lunar surface. Blue cable measures 17″ long and consists of a set of wires wrapped in cloth with a robust circular metal connector at the end, engraved on top with the ID numbers “ASSY 9046 SN 444.” Connector measures 1.5″ in diameter and has a functional rotating ring which was used to securely lock the crucial connection in place. In fine condition, with some fraying to cloth cable wrap where it was cut. Originates from Scott’s personal collection and is accompanied by signed a certificate of authenticity. Provenance: Aurora, 2004.

The Primary Life Support System (PLSS) was the backpack-like device which provided oxygen and regulated all necessary functions during extra-vehicular activity, such as suit pressure, ventilation, and two-way communication. While on the moon, Scott conducted three EVAs for a total time of 18 hours and 35 minutes spent on the lunar surface—an impressive duration made possible by this cable. Scott kept this all-important piece of hardware in his collection for over three decades, as NASA’s policy permitted astronauts to keep disposal items from their flights as personal mementos. A truly incredible piece of lunar history. RR Auction COA.
