Description


Unflown numerical display panel from the Apollo Guidance Computer Display and Keyboard (DSKY) unit. Assembly is constructed of glass, metal, and rubber, and measures 3.25 x 4.5 x 1, with the words “COMP ACTY,” "PROG," “VERB,” and “NOUN,” printed at the top of the 21 digit numerical display, which would light up as the computer was working, display the program number, identify the action to be performed, and provide a data readout. The bottom bears stencilled part and serial numbers, “NASA Part No. 1006315-001, Rev. E, LS1 Part No. 142882-001, Ser. No. 205,” and one end has markings which read, “20039988-021, RAY 205.” In fine condition. The DSKY units were mounted in the Lunar and Command modules, and interfaced with the Apollo Guidance Computer—an essential piece of equipment for guidance, navigation, and control of the spacecraft. Commands were entered with two digits in a verb-noun sequence, and the panels were frequently used to display altitude and velocity. An incredible artifact that played an integral role in safely landing a man on the moon. RR Auction COA.
