Description


Exceptional flown dual-sided lunar surface exploration chart used in orbit aboard the Apollo 13 lunar module Aquarius, 10.5 x 8, signed in black felt tip, “James Lovell, Apollo 13” and “Fred Haise, Apollo 13 LMP.” Dated April 1970, the chart is labeled LSE-20 and depicts a portion of the Far Mauro formation. In fine condition. Accompanied by certificates of authenticity from Astronaut Central and Spaceflori, and copies of the Apollo 13 surface maps package, the mission’s stowage list, and a letter of provenance from George Colton. Removed from the Apollo 13 crew’s LM Lunar Surface Maps book, this LSE Fra Mauro chart is number 20 of the 25 lunar maps carried into orbit aboard the Aquarius. Responsible for designing and producing all of the mission’s lunar maps and charts, Colton was presented with the book by the Apollo 13 crew only a few days after their return to Houston’s Johnson Space Center. Enhanced by its unusual provenance, this ideal flown example originates from the very man whose compiled lunar images infamously remain unused. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
