    Apollo Lunar Module: Vintage Commander's Side Forward Window (Inner Pane), Originally from a Grumman Employee. The LM's triangular-shaped front windows were "located in the front-face bulkhead of the forward cabin section [and] were installed in a plane oblique to the vehicle axes to provide an approximately 65° down and 80° outboard. These windows provided the required visibility during the lunar descent, lunar landing, and lunar stay phases of the mission." This, being a left-hand side window pane, has a landing-point designator painted on it which would provide the astronaut the capability of targeting the desired final landing point. It measures approximately 21" x 20.5" as pictured (21.5" x 21" x 24" along the sides) and is made from tempered Chemcor (now called "Gorilla") glass by Corning. There are Electrical Conductive Coating bus wires along the edges of two sides to assist with de-fogging in flight. The first of these we have ever offered. A rare opportunity. Excellent.

    Included with the lot is a group of supporting material including: (1) a copy of NASA Technical Note "Apollo Experience Report- Spacecraft Structural Windows (which is quoted above); (2) a copy of the Corning Gorilla® Glass spec sheet; (3) Color glossy photos of Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11) and Alan Bean (Apollo 12) exiting their LMs with a front window visible; and (4) a very cool color glossy photo- a simulation of what Neil Armstrong was seeing out his window as he landed Eagle on the moon.
