Telemetry strip of data transmitted from the Mariner 2 probe to Venus, 8 x 1.75, as received by the JPL flight control center in California in December 1962. In fine condition. Accompanied by a photocopy of the original 1962 transmittal letter from JPL enclosing this original telemetry strip. This 'garbled' transmission proved that the spacecraft had indeed achieved its goal of successfully flying to another planet for the first time in human history. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
