Excellent color 43 x 21.25 Lunar Orbit Science Flight chart for the Apollo 13 mission, signed in black felt tip, “‘Our one trip around the moon,’ Fred Haise, Apollo 13 Lunar Module Pilot.” Labeled in the lower right corner, “Chart A, 1 of 4, Apollo mission 13, REV 1 through 18, 11 April 1970 Launch Date,” this first edition chart, dated February 2, 1970, shows the rough lunar terrain with various points of interest and planned tracking lines for Apollo 13 lunar orbits. Rolled and in fine condition. Though dozens of lunar orbits were planned, Apollo 13 only got to go around the moon once because of their emergency return after the oxygen tank explosion, rendering Haise’s inscription on this piece quite fitting. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
