Description


James Lovell's Apollo 13 training-worn Beta cloth name tag, "J. Lovell," measuring 3.25 x 2, removed from the PLSS (Portable Life Support System) RCU (Remote Control Unit) after training. In fine condition, with expected wear from use. Accompanied by a photo diagram showing the label on Lovell's suit during training. These name tags were removed and replaced after the final crew training exercise for each mission, as they had only two RCU mockups to be used for all Apollo Crew Training missions. In this instance, Lovell's name tag was replaced with one for the commander of Apollo 14, Alan Shepard. 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.
