Set of six original vintage glossy NASA photos, 8 x 10 and 10 x 8, each depicting Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin during the Apollo 11 moon mission, with images including: Aldrin posing near the leg of the lunar lander; two of Aldrin descending the rungs of the LM ladder; another of him removing scientific experiment packages from the lunar module; and two iconic images, one close-up and the other set further back, showing Aldrin standing on the lunar surface with a reflection of Commander Neil Armstrong visible in his helmet visor. Reverse of each photo bears official purple NASA caption text. In overall fine condition.
One of the most incredible aspects of the Dan Schaiewitz Collection is the astounding assortment of vintage NASA photographs. As an integral part of KSC’s PLSS training, most notably on the first lunar landing mission, he actually took part in these amazing behind-the-scenes moments: Dan himself tested Armstrong’s space suit. Offered here are exceptionally rare Apollo 11 red-numbered training photographs, many of them quite possibly never-before-seen by collectors and offered here for the first time. 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.
