    Description

    Apollo 14 Flown Texas State Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Certified and Signed. Offered here is a 5.875" x 4.25" silk Texas flag that was carried aboard Apollo 14 on its mission to the moon, January 31-February 9, 1971. This flag stayed in the orbiting Command Module Kitty Hawk with Stuart Roosa while Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell took the Lunar Module Antares to the lunar surface. Texas, of course, is the home of the Johnson Space Center, NASA's center for manned spaceflight activities. Excellent condition.

    Dr. Mitchell has certified this flag: "Flown to the moon/ aboard Kittyhawk on/ Apollo 14/ Edgar Mitchell/ LMP".

    Included in this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Dr. Mitchell on his personal letterhead stating (in part): "This letter certifies that the accompanying 4" x 6" flag of Texas bearing the written inscription... was carried in my personal preference kit (PPK) on Apollo 14 from January 31, 1971 to February 9, 1971 during the Apollo 14 mission... Admiral Alan Shepard, Commander, Colonel Stuart Roosa, Command Module Pilot, and myself as Lunar Module Pilot, were sent to explore the Frau Mauro Highlands region of the moon on February 5-6, 1971, as the third landing mission to the moon..."
