Description

    Apollo 14 Command Module Flown American Flag, Signed by Ed Mitchell. The Apollo 14 lunar mission launched from Cape Kennedy on January 31, 1971, with three intrepid space explorers aboard - Alan Shepard, Stuart Roosa, and Ed Mitchell. Apollo 14 was eighth manned mission in the Apollo program and the third mission to land on the Moon.

    Once in orbit around the Moon, Roosa was tasked with piloting the command module Kitty Hawk while Shepard and Mitchell boarded the lunar module Antares for a brief trip to the lunar surface. Although he did not take this item with him to the lunar surface, astronaut Mitchell did carry this 11.5" x 8" cloth flag with him aboard the Kitty Hawk during its nine-day mission. It is inscribed and signed in blue ink: "Flown to the Moon aboard Apollo 14. Edgar Mitchell." The flag is accompanied by two certificates of authenticity - one handwritten and one typed - by Ed Mitchell on his personal Apollo 14 letterhead. Both the flag and the certificates of authenticity are in very fine condition. From the personal collection of Dr. Edgar Mitchell.
