Description


Buzz Aldrin’s flown double-sided page from the Apollo 11 LM Lunar Surface Checklist, carried to the surface of the moon aboard the Lunar Module Eagle during the inaugural lunar-landing mission. The checklist page, 5.5 x 8, is numbered “SUR-11” and “SUR-12,” with front vertically signed and flight-certified in blue ballpoint, “Used by Neil Armstrong and me just after Eagle’s landing on Apollo XI, Buzz Aldrin,” and then again on the reverse, “Flown to the lunar surface on Apollo XI, Buzz Aldrin.” The front side, “SUR-11,” features the final steps Aldrin and Armstrong made to complete the lunar surface alignment of the Eagle’s navigational equipment just prior to 30 minutes from the possible emergency liftoff. The reverse side, “SUR-12,” features a panel chart with various ‘in’ or ‘out’ breakers; a black circle indicates the breaker should be ‘pushed in’ or engaged to allow current flow, and the white circle indicates the breaker should be ‘pulled out’ to break the flow of electrical current, thus preventing operation of that part of the Eagle’s systems. In fine condition.

The checklist page is accompanied by a sheet of personal letterhead signed in blue ballpoint by Aldrin, which reads, in part: “Accompanying this letter is a sheet numbered SUR-11 and SUR-12 from the Apollo 11 LM Lunar Surface Checklist, Part No. SKB32100074-363, S/N 1001. This checklist was taken to the Moon on the flight of Apollo 11 during July 16 to 24, 1969. Then the entire checklist, including this sheet, was carried to the surface of the Moon in Lunar Module Eagle during the first lunar landing on July 20, 1969. This sheet has the important steps Neil Armstrong and I performed in Eagle just about an hour after the manned lunar landing…This sheet has been in my private collection since 1969.”
