Description


Mercury star chart from the personal collection of flight director Gene Kranz. Laminated double-sided chart measures 4 x 10.75 with many stars and constellations identified, and is signed in black felt tip by Kranz. In fine condition. This star chart is a part of a full set of charts used by Mercury Astronauts assigned to Remote Tracking Stations. By using the correct star chart and a clear overlay (not included) in the shape of a spacecraft window, they were able to see the same view being seen by the orbiting astronaut from his capsule window. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Farthest Reaches. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli and RR Auction COA.
