Description


Early Apollo Block I control panel, #25, measuring 20.25 x 13.5, with 5 rows of switches and circuit breakers for Post Landing systems, the Stabilization and Control System, and propulsion systems. Panel has three NASA S & ID tags attached to it, and states “Panel Assy #25, S/N AAF0077,” and bears multiple inspection stamps and checks from 1966. Panel also retains its four heavy connectors. This panel would have been mounted to the left of the commander for use throughout the flight and after splashdown. A similar panel was mounted in the Apollo 1 spacecraft at the time of its fire on January 27, 1967. In fine condition.

This is the same type of panel used by NASA during the mid-1960s in preparation for the Apollo 1 mission, which claimed the lives of astronauts Gus Grissom, Ed White, and Roger Chaffee in 1967. North American Aviation discontinued the Block I design after the accident as NASA concentrated on the Block II design for lunar missions. RR Auction COA.
