Karl Henize's Apollo-era sky blue cotton flight suit, size 40 short, with an official ‘meatball’ NASA patch on the left breast and a black Velcro name patch, "Karl Henize," attached to right breast. The original Land Mfg. Co. Flite Wear tag is sewn into the collar area. In fine condition. As part of a NASA-funded expedition to Mount Everest in October 1993, Henize died from high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) after having reached Advanced Base Camp at 21,300 feet (6,500 m). An esteemed scientist and astronomer, Henize was in the Astronaut Support Crew for Apollo 15 and Skylab 2, 3 and 4, and was awarded the NASA Exceptional Scientific Achievement Medal in 1974. A magnificent extension to the life and impact of a brilliant NASA astronaut.
