Description


Two items, including a flown Lunar Bible fragment and a signed photograph. The highly desirable 50-page segment of a microfilmed King James Bible was carried to the lunar surface by Edgar Mitchell on Apollo 14, and is affixed to a 5 x 7 Apollo Prayer League presentation sheet, noting that the serial number is “14 164-08.” The sheet reads, in part: “This is part of the first Bible to have been taken from planet Earth to another celestial body…The above 50 page segment of the King James Version…was carried in the spacesuit of astronaut Edgar D. Mitchell for the Apollo Prayer League as a personal gesture to Rev. John M Stout.” The famous ‘First Lunar Bible’ was produced by the Apollo Prayer League, a group of NASA engineers, scientists, administrators, and astronauts. Containing 50 pages of the King James Bible, this microfilm can easily be read under a microscope and represents the first and only Bible to fly to the lunar surface. Also includes an official color glossy 10 x 8 NASA photo of the Apollo 14 astronauts, signed in blue felt tip, "Go for the moon! Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 LMP." Reverse bears “A Kodak Paper” watermarks. In overall fine condition. From the collection of aerospace memorabilia specialist Ken Havekotte.
