Oversized official color 11 x 14 NASA lithograph of the dramatic and fiery launch of the Apollo 11 mission from Kennedy Space Center Launch Complex 39 on July 16, 1969, signed in the lower border in black felt tip, "What Jack hoped for we carried out for all, Buzz Aldrin." In fine condition. Consignor notes that this oversized Apollo 11 lithograph was signed by Aldrin at the Dunes Hotel and Country Club in Las Vegas in 1970. Before Aldrin signed the lithograph, the consignor asked him to write a 'short inscription about what he thought of when he looked at the photos.' Here, Aldrin references President John F. Kennedy's famous 1962 goal of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to Earth before the end of the decade—a goal that Aldrin successfully achieved in July 1969.
