Lot 9260: Unusual double-sided page flown on the Apollo 10 mission featuring a color photographic map of Earth as seen from space, 7.5 x 10.5, signed and flight-certified in the lower right in blue ballpoint, "Flown to the Moon on Apollo X, Gene Cernan." A tab affixed to the right edge reads, "501-533-534, 535-536-537," and the signed side of the page features an image of Australia with key locations identified, and table listing latitude and longitude. The opposing side has a much closer view of the northern part of the continent with a similar table of coordinates below. In fine condition. Accompanied by a data CD and certificate of authenticity attesting to the page's provenance. With its vibrant pictures of Earth this page holds special visual appeal, as flown checklists and manual pages are rarely found with such large, colorful images.
