Description

    Dave Scott's flown lunar map including view of the Sea of Serenity and signed by Al Worden

    Apollo 15 Command Module Flown Lunar Map Signed by Al Worden. Apollo XV lunar map, 11" x 7.75" trimmed, signed "Flown to the Moon Al Worden Apollo 15 CMP". Additional notations in black, green and red marker highlighting surface areas would indicate use of the map during the mission. Cut from a larger map, this section includes the Sea of Serenity, Aratus C, Aratus D, and Linne as well as a map scale. Accompanied by a certificate of provenance signed by Worden attesting to the historic importance of the Apollo XV mission. Certificate reads in part: "Apollo 15 was the first mission to explore the mountains and rilles of the Moon. Commander Dave Scott and Luna Module Pilot James Irwin completed three moonwalks for a combined duration of 18 hours and 33 minutes on the lunar surface. They explored the Hadley/Appenine Mountains over a longer period, at greater distances, and with more instruments for the collection of scientific data than any previous mission. Our mission included the introduction of a Lunar Roving Vehicle to traverse the Moon's surface and a scientific instrument bay in the Service Module to study the Moon from above... During the return trip to Earth, nearly 200,000 miles away from home, I performed a 38 minute spacewalk to recover film that had been exposed during flight. This was mankind's first ever deep space EVA..." Also included is an additional COA issued by Aurora certifying that this Lunar Map was used by Dave Scott on the Apollo 15 mission. Map is unevenly trimmed, with a single vertical crease down middle, light surface wrinkling throughout commensurate with use on a mission.
