Description


Lower Equipment Bay (LEB) Control Panel 105 assembly that comprised part of the Guidance and Navigation interface, 23.5 x 13, bearing a NASA parts label on the reverse of the panel reading, “Apollo G&N System, G&N Indicator Control Panel Assembly, Part No. 1014664-021, Serial No. ACSK 3, Cont. No. NAS 9-497.” The panel is stenciled “Qual Test” in several areas in yellow text. Sections of the front of the panel are labeled “Optics,” “Attitude Impulse,” “Map and Data Viewer,” and “IMU Temp Mode,” all with various buttons, switches, and controls; an area to the upper left is inset with a joystick control. The “Tracker Power” toggle switch to the lower left was unique to and identifies this panel as either intended for or originating from Apollo Command Module 014; this spacecraft was slated to fly as Apollo 2 but dismantled after the Apollo 1 fire. Scattered soiling, otherwise fine condition. The Guidance and Navigation system measured spacecraft attitude, controlled the thrust vector of the main and reaction control engines, and provided abort information and display data. An especially desirable artifact given its early date in the Apollo program and overall visual appeal.
