Item 8476 - Shuttle Launch Pad 39A Light Fixture Catalog 511 (Oct 2017)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $500.00 +
Sold Price: $890.58 (includes buyer's premium)


Original light fixture from the famous Launch Pad 39A Fixed Service Structure (FSS) at the Kennedy Space Center. This metal light fixture, which approximately measures 19 x 10 x 8 (the bulb roughly 4.5″ in diameter with part number 607530), hung at the pad from the 1970s and the inception of the Space Shuttle program until its removal from the FSS in 2016 when the launch complex was being refurbished for the incoming commercial launch services company SpaceX. The side of the unit features the original Group B, Appleton Electric Company label. The structure supporting the light fixture was built of special blast-protective steel in case of a launch explosion or pad fire. In very good condition, with wear from significant use. Accompanied by two images of a similar light from the service structure. The 347-foot high FSS of Launch Complex 39A was the closest structure to the Shuttle itself and home to the Orbiter Access Swing Arm for crew entrance and exit, which was attached to the famous 'white room.' Pad A of Launch Complex 39 was the site of 92 launches from 1967 through 2011, including eighty Shuttle launches and all but two of the manned Apollo flights. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
