Minimum Bid: $300.00
Sold Price: $4,446.75 (includes buyer's premium)


Complete flown checklist entitled “Entry Pocket C/L” carried on Space Shuttle Columbia for the STS-3 mission, approximately 140 pages (70 double-sided sheets), 5.75 x 8, signed and flight-certified on the front cover in blue ballpoint, “My Entry Pocket Checklist flown on STS-3. Jack Lousma, Commander, STS-3.” The checklist is divided by tabs labeled “APU/HYD,” “Comm,” “DPS,” “ECLS,” “EPS,” “GNC,” “OMS,” “RCS,” “PwrDn,” and “STS-3,” and contains procedures to follow to ensure safety should any spacecraft systems malfunction during entry. Several pages bear handwritten notations, including the sections about loss of cabin pressure and loss of freon loops. In fine condition. While Lousma did experience some trouble with the Shuttle upon reentry and landing—the nose of the spacecraft unexpectedly lifted up—the mission was generally a great success. Entirely intact flown checklists are increasingly rare and this example comes from one of the earliest Space Shuttle flights. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
