    Aldrin, Leonov, Kubasov

    Deke Slayton: Two Memorial Service Programs Signed. Slayton was one of the original "Mercury Seven" astronauts but a heart murmur kept him from flying in space until the Apollo-Soyuz Test Project in 1975. His death in 1993 was memorialized by a service at the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center in Houston on June 19, 1993. Here are two identical four page 5.5" x 8.5" printed programs from that service.
    (1) Signed on the front in black ink by a fellow astronaut, "Buzz Aldrin".
    (2) Signed by the two Soviet cosmonauts from the Apollo-Soyuz mission, Alexei Leonov and Valeri Kubasov (both in Cyrillic).
    The words to the Julie Gold song "From a Distance" are printed on the back page. Both very fine.
