Description

    NASA Astronaut Groups Two and Three: Hawaii Training Photo Signed by Seven. A number of astronauts were taken to Hawaii for their first geologic training exercises between January 12 and January 24, 1965, in order to view the amazing display of recent basaltic volcanic features. It was NASA's feeling that the fresh, recent, and ancient lava-flow surfaces could be compared and related to possible lunar surface features. Part of the viewing was done by flyovers in a twelve-seat aircraft operated by Hawaiian Air Tour Service. The pilot of that aircraft managed to get some of the astronauts to sign this 10" x 8" B&W photo. This image pictures and is signed by the following: "Neil Armstrong", "Michael Collins", "Rusty Schweickart", "Elliot See", "Charlie Bassett", "Walter Cunningham", and "Bill Anders". It is inscribed by one of them: "Nice Job H A T S! To Timmy". Generally fine condition with some light wear. It has a typed caption stapled to the bottom and contrast of the Armstrong signature is poor and it appears to be smudged.
