Description


Exceedingly rare flown complete NCR microfilm Bible, 2 x 2, carried to the International Space Station on board Soyuz TMA-8, and returned to earth on Space Shuttle Discovery four months later on STS-121. Unlike the 300+ microfilm bibles flown on Apollo, this is the only such microfilm bible known to have flown on Soyuz, the ISS, and Space Shuttle Discovery. Microfilm contains all 1,245 pages of the King James Bible and is held in its original 2.5 x 3 paper folder, which is signed twice in blue ballpoint by cosmonaut Pavel Vinogradov and bears an ISS ink stamp. In fine condition, with a few wrinkles to the folder. Accompanied by a letter of provenance also signed by Vinogradov, as well as a custom book with images from the mission and of the Bible in flight, and Vinogradov with the Bible, as well as telling the story of this Bible’s flight in homage to the Apollo Prayer League flown Bibles. A fantastic item, flown in the year of the 35th anniversary of the first microfilm Bibles’ successful flight to the moon on Apollo 14. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
