Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $3,044.40 (includes buyer's premium)


Flown penlight carried on board Gemini 9. Two-celled penlight measures 5.25″ long with a maximum diameter of 1". Light is hand-labelled “ACR Model FA 3, NASA No. EC-30115, Date of Mfg. Nov, S/N 116,” with “On" and "Off" printed near the head which rotated to turn on and off. A one-inch wide strip of Velcro is affixed around the base of the handle. Two bands of red paint have been applied to the light taking it out of service. In fine condition, with expected wear and a rather pertinent, unpleasant odor emanating from the light. Accompanied by a NASA-MSC System and Component Historical Record sheet, filled in by several technicians following the complete history of use of the light from its December 1965 shipment to the Kennedy Space Center; its May 28, 1966 packaging for Gemini; its installation and flight duration of the mission; and its eventual removal from service and placement in bonded storage.
