Description


Flown embroidered Apollo 14 mission patch carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Kitty Hawk during the Apollo 14 mission, 4″ x 3.5″, signed and flight-certified on the reverse in black felt tip, "Flown to the moon, Edgar Mitchell." In very fine condition. Accompanied by a signed certificate of authenticity from Mitchell, who writes: "The accompanying…Apollo 14 cloth emblem patch was carried by me to the Moon aboard Apollo 14…Each astronaut was permitted to bring a few items with them on the flight, and I chose to include this cloth patch among mine. It remained stowed aboard our Command Module 'Kittyhawk' during the entire duration of the mission…During the flight, this patch traveled at speeds of nearly 25,000 mph during its acceleration into deep space, and once again upon its fiery re-entry back into Earth's atmosphere. It traveled over 750,000 miles, and also completed 34 orbits of the Moon over the course of 67 hours! This mission patch has remained a treasured part of my personal space collection since February, 1971, when it was returned to me by NASA after release from lunar quarantine."
