Description


Scarce NASA-printed manual for the “Report of Apollo 204 Review Board to the Administrator National Aeronautics and Space Administration,” 8.5 x 10.75, 114 pages (with supplementary pages featuring color images and diagrams of the Apollo 1 accident and capsule), April 5, 1967. The review board was charged with the responsibility of reviewing the circumstances surrounding the Apollo 1 (AS-204) accident, reporting its findings relating to the cause of the accident, and formulating recommendations so that inherent hazards are reduced to a minimum. The manual consists of six parts: Authority, Biographies, Board, History of the Accident, Investigation and Analysis, and Findings, Determinations and Recommendations. The lower left front cover annotated in blue felt tip: “J. King, KSC P10, BA-1.” In fine condition. Jack King served as the Kennedy Space Center Chief of Public Information during projects Mercury, Gemini and Apollo, who provided public announcements and commentary for several of the mission launches, including the announcement of the Apollo 11 launch, which earned him the nickname ‘Voice of Apollo.’ Originating from the Astronaut Scholarship Foundation, a portion of the proceeds for the sale of this item will be donated to the ASF.
