Description


Complete full STS-6 Entry Checklist, flown into orbit on board Space Shuttle Challenger during the STS-6 mission. Checklist measures 5.5 x 8, is bound with its three original rings to the left border, and contains 104 pages (52 individual sheets). Arranged into 11 tabbed sections, the manual covers the process for maneuvering and setting up for deorbit, as well as the processes for landing, turning off critical systems of the Shuttle, and egressing the orbiter. There are 13 pages with in-flight writing by Paul Weitz, shuch as various numbers and check marks as procedures were completed. Also interesting are handwritten notations on egress page, noting: “Return to Houston: FDF, Debrief Guide, Film, VTR Tapes, Cassette Tapes, PPK, Pictures, Etc.” Signed on the front cover in black felt tip by Weitz, “Flown on STS-6, Paul Weitz, CDR,” and signed by Weitz inside the front cover with a handwritten letter of provenance, in full: “I hereby certify that this Entry Checklist was flown aboard the Space Shuttle Challenger on STS-6. It was utilized to ensure that all necessary evolutions occurred as required. It is from my personal collection of artifacts.” In fine condition. Complete shuttle checklists are rare, as many are broken up page by page. This is a particularly fascinating example as it details one of the most critical moments in spaceflight and comes from a historic mission, STS-6 being Space Shuttle Challenger’s first journey into orbit. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
