Description

    Gene Cernan's Apollo 10 Lunar Module Flown Personal Penlight. A heavy, brass-milled two-cell flashlight, 5" in length and with a maximum diameter of 1". The original batteries are still inside. The filament in the bulb appears to be intact. It has a part number of "ACR FA 5" and a serial number of "031" as printed on the barrel. "On" and "Off" are printed near the head which rotates to turn on and off. A piece of Velcro is attached at the top near the lens.

    Apollo astronauts were equipped with a small penlight for use throughout their mission. They proved to be quite handy for a variety of tasks. Apollo 10 Lunar Module Pilot Gene Cernan carried this penlight throughout the May 1969 mission, a dress rehearsal for Apollo 11's moon landing. He used it in the Control Module Charlie Brown, and carried it to within 8.4 miles of the lunar surface aboard the Lunar Module Snoopy. It was with him when Charlie Brown set the world record for speed attained by a manned vehicle, 24,791 mph on the return from the moon! From the personal collection of Captain Gene Cernan accompanied by written authentication by Cernan.
