Description


Rare set of vintage circa 1965 felt tip and ballpoint signatures, accomplished on an off-white 2.5 x 3.75 sheet, of the ten Apollo astronauts who underwent geology field training in Iceland: "Best Wishes, Charlie Bassett," "Rusty Schweickart," "Bill Anders," "Donn Eisele," "Alan L. Bean," "Walt Cunningham," "Gene Cernan," "Dave Scott," "C. C. Williams," and "Roger Chaffee." Handsomely double-matted and framed with a plaque and four images of their geology training to an overall size of 16.75 x 15. In fine condition, with scattered light creasing. The ten astronauts arrived in Iceland on July 12, 1965, and they spent a week exploring the barren highlands and volcanic geology of Iceland, which they expected to be the most moonlike of any earthly landscape. A very rare assemblage, as Charles Bassett and Clifton Williams were both killed in T-38 jet accidents, and Chaffee died in the Apollo 1 fire.
