DescriptionGemini 12 Training-Used Hardsuit EVA Training Checklist Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Signed. This unflown 5.5" x 8" book, of approximately twenty-eight tabbed pages printed on cardstock, is bound with two binder rings (with a third binder ring attached to the lower corner of the back cover only) between heavy cardstock covers, both of which have two long strips of Velcro to facilitate attachment to the surfaces of the space capsule. There is a strip of Velcro on the inside front cover as well as small color-coded pieces on each of the page tabs; this enabled the book to easily stay open to a certain page. Printed in the lower area of the front cover is "PART NO/ CF55019", "DASH/ 20" "S/N/ 125", "S/C/ [blank]","BOOK/ [blank]", and "REMARKS/ HARDSUIT EVA". Inside are step by step instructions for both Command Pilot James Lovell and Pilot Buzz Aldrin regarding the planned EVAs, used in the training process. Several printed star constellation diagrams are included in the text and there are a few handwritten notes. Very fine condition with minor soiling on the boards and evidence of use.
As this was the last flight of the Gemini program, it was very important to fine-tune the art of an astronaut working efficiently outside of the spacecraft, something that had not yet been perfected. Gemini 12's Buzz Aldrin made a (then) record three EVAs on this flight, all of which accomplished multiple goals. Two were of the "stand-up" variety and one was tethered.
Lovell has signed this book on the front cover: "James Lovell/ Gemini 12".
