Description


Flown double-sided checklist page carried on board Apollo 13, headed “LMA790-3-LM, Apollo Operations Handbook,” pages 62–63 from the “Apollo 13 Flight Data File,” 8 x 10.5, signed in black ballpoint, “James Lovell, Apollo 13 CDR.” The page is labeled “LM Malfunction Procedures” in the right margin, with the signed side providing a flow chart for diagnosing problems with the glycol temperature control systems, listing malfunctions such as “Leak in Primary Glycol Loop,” “Glycol Temp Sensor or Sig Cond Failed,” “Thermal Overload,” and “Primary Sublimator Failure.” The opposing side provides other diagnostic steps for the Environmental Control System, identifying parts such as the suit fan, water separator, carbon dioxide sensors, and glycol pumps. In fine condition. Accompanied by a data CD and certificate of authenticity attesting to the page’s provenance and a COA from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation. Flown items from Apollo 13 are extremely popular and less common than those from many other missions. Given the fame of the Apollo 13 spacecraft’s failure, this page concerning malfunction diagnostics has particular appeal. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
