Description


Flown biomedical harness carried on the Apollo 9 mission, measuring 26″ long, consisting of a serial-type cable with a blue fabric sheath attached to a black plastic piece with four rubber-coated wires extending from it, each terminated with a two-prong connector. A similar wire extends from the center of the blue sheath and terminates with a white plug. The black plastic piece is marked with white text: “Cicoil Corp, 526A100, S/N 004.” Presented in a 12 x 12 display. In fine condition, with expected wear from use. Accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Apollo 9 Commander Jim McDivitt, in full: “I certify that this electrical biomedical harness flew aboard Apollo 9 on that flight from March 3–13, 1969. It is from my personal collection.” This piece would have been worn under the underneath Constant Wear Garment when in the spacecraft or under the Liquid Cooling Garment during EVA to provide crew biotelemetry monitoring of vital signs such as pulse and respiration. A desirable piece of flown equipment essential to ensuring the safety of the Apollo astronauts.
