Created By The Mercury 7 Astronauts
This page from an Apollo 13 / LM-7 Flight Crew Guidance and Navigation (G&N) Dictionary was used in astronaut training in Lunar Module Simulator 2 (LMS-2) at Kennedy Space Center, Florida for the planned lunar landing of the Apollo 13 mission.
The 5.5" x 8" page is dated "Basic Date: 1/5/70" and labeled "PGNS-50" and includes tab "P72-P76". The page has been signed by Apollo 13 Commander James Lovell and Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise. Haise has added the inscription "Used in training on Apollo 13."
The dictionary page, alongside a photo of Haise in LMS-2, has been matted and framed using archival methods. The final presentation measures approximately 13" x 17".
