Description


Three items: an official color 8 x 10 NASA lithograph of James Lovell wearing his white space suit, signed and inscribed in black felt tip, "To Dan—thanks for all your help in EVA training, James Lovell"; an official color 8 x 10 NASA lithograph of Fred Haise wearing his white space suit, signed and inscribed in black ballpoint, "Thanks for the PLSS, Dan, but no thanks for those 2 ton cryo packs—I don't care if I never see one of those again. All joking aside—Apollo 13 appreciates your efforts to help us get ready and run EVA's. Regards, Freddo"; and a TLS signed "DK Slayton," one page, 8 x 10.5, February 11, 1970, NASA letterhead, in part: "Throughout the training cycles for the Apollo 11 and 12 crews, and now Apollo 13, I have received favorable comments on the performance of the individuals from your organization who have been assigned to support crew training. The complexity of your equipment, combined with the need for detailed knowledge of mission requirements, places a big demand on these individuals. Constantly changing schedules, hardware changes, and the dynamic nature of the entire effort place further demands and, to date, these demands have been met flawlessly." In overall very good condition, with a paperclip mark to each photo. Accompanied by a letter from Haise signed in autopen, in part: "As an engineer for Hamilton Standard, your efforts on the Apollo program have been highly professional and have contributed importantly to the success of our manned lunar effort. This letter is our way of saying thanks for the outstanding support you have given us through quality work in monitoring cryogenics in the PLSS units and checking of flight hardware." From the collection of Dan Schaiewitz, who worked as Extravehicular Crew Training Engineer at KSC. View Dan's many Collect Space posts here. Engineer Dan Schaiewitz gives us a fascinating firsthand glimpse into his experiences on the cutting edge of space exploration during the Apollo missions, in this podcast.
