Original fragment of film flown to the lunar surface on board Apollo 11. Film is affixed to an 8.5 x 11 certificate of authenticity signed by Richard W. Underwood, Supervisory Aerospace Technologist at the Johnson Space Center. Certificate details the chronology of the film from after liftoff until its return on board Columbia. The certificate states that “107 photographs were taken on this film roll while on the surface of the moon.” In fine condition. Underwood was responsible for developing the Apollo photographs—in fact he was the first person to view every photograph from the Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz and the first 23 space shuttle missions.
