From the personal collection of Jack King, who served as the Kennedy Space Center Chief of Public Information during projects Mercury, Gemini and Apollo. King 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.
