Created By The Mercury 7 Astronauts
From the personal collection of STS-6 Commander Paul Weitz, this authentic NASA-issued STS-6 Crew Activity Plan page was flown in space and used as a schedule by the astronauts during their six-day mission. It has been signed and inscribed, "Flown on STS-6, From my personal collection, Paul Weitz CDR."
The front of the 8" x 10.5" page, numbered "4-66," displays text indicating the mission, "STS-6 8D DEPLOY" and day "003," and the scheduled tasks from 05:00 to 06:00 as well as columns indicating "CDR/PLT, MS1/MS2, MCC." The reverse, numbered "4-96," continues the day's activities from 06:00 to 07:00 and includes penciled notations.
