Description

    Apollo 16 Lunar Module Flown LM Oxygen System Schematic Signed by and from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Charlie Duke. This foldout printed diagram is approximately 37" x 10.5" and titled "Environmental O2 Supply Suit Loop". It has been certified and signed by Duke: "This schematic of the O2 supply suit loop is taken from the Apollo 16 LM Systems Data Book Flown to the Lunar Surface on LM 'Orion'". An important item flown to the Descartes Highlands on the surface of the moon April 21, 1971, where it remained for just under three full days. Extremely fine condition.

    Included with this lot is a handwritten and signed Letter of Authenticity from Charles M. Duke, Jr. on his personal letterhead stating, in part: "...this Apollo XVI schematic... was a part of the official data package on Apollo XVI... If any problems arose in our oxygen system, we could refer to this schematic to trouble shoot... It was carried to the moon onboard the Lunar Module 'Orion'... It was returned to Earth onboard the CM 'Casper'. This schematic has been in my possession and a part of my personal space collection since the mission was concluded. May it remind you of the adventure that was Apollo."
