Description


Large hand-painted Apollo 10 mission emblem on a 32.25 x 36 piece of cut plywood, with several small holes along the gold border for hanging. This well-done depiction of the emblem was originally displayed at the Goddard Space Flight Center Logistics Shipping and Receiving Building. In fine condition. The mission’s emblem, originally designed by Allen Stevens of Rockwell International, depicts the CSM and LM circling the lunar surface with a large Roman numeral “X” in the center. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Apollo 10 Commander Thomas P. Stafford, on his business stationery, which reads: “This super large hand-painted Apollo X mission emblem was displayed at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, during and after the Apollo Program. It along with all the other Apollo mission emblems was located inside Building 16W (Warehouse) which housed shipping and receiving operations for the flight center. Goddard played an important role during Apollo, being the nerve center for the world-wide tracking network. The emblems were removed during building modifications in the early 1990’s. Apollo X was flown during May 1969 and successfully demonstrated all the critical lunar flight techniques required for a lunar landing. I was commander of this flight with Gene Cernan flying with me in our Lunar Module we named Snoopy. John Young was Command Module Pilot and flew solo inside Charlie Brown while Gene and I conducted Lunar Module flight maneuvers. Our flight enabled the Apollo 11 crew to make the first manned lunar landing just two months later during July 1969.”
