Lot 15: Skylab Multi-Signed Customer Training Manual

This customer training manual for the Skylab Structures and Mechanical Systems, from the personal collection of Skylab 2 Pilot Paul Weitz, was used by the astronaut during training. Weitz and fellow Skylab astronauts Jerry Carr, Jack Lousma, and the late Bill Pogue have signed the manual, ensuring that each of the three Skylab missions is represented by at least one crewmember.

Produced by the Space Division of North American Rockwell and dated "22 March 1971," the manual was intended for Weitz's personal use and is labeled "WEITZ" in the upper right-hand corner of the front cover. The light blue cardstock cover is printed with a rendering of the Skylab space station and labeled:

"CUSTOMER TRAINING

SKYLAB

STURCTURES AND
MECHANICAL SYSTEMS

FOR TRAINING PURPOSES ONLY"

The 9" x 11", three-hole punched manual consists of 21 pages, 7 tabbed dividers, 17 diagrams, and 4 tables. Two of the pages include hand-written notes penciled in by Weitz.

The lot is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Weitz.
