Description


Lunar flown .25 x .25 film chip fragment and an orbit flown .25 x .5 swatch of Kapton foil from the historic Apollo 11 mission. Both are affixed to an 8.5 x 11 certificate of authenticity signed by Richard W. Underwood, Supervisory Aerospace Technologist at the Johnson Space Center. Certificate details the chronology of the film chip from after liftoff until its return on board Columbia, stating that “107 photographs were taken on this film roll while on the surface of the moon.” In fine condition. Underwood was responsible for developing the Apollo photographs—in fact he was the first person to view every photograph from the Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz, and the first 23 space shuttle missions. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
