Skylab 2 Cue Card Signed by Weitz

Description

From the personal collection of Skylab 2 pilot Paul Weitz, this cue card, labeled "M171 SUBJECT" and dated 11/22/72, was used during Weitz's training prior to the launch of Skylab 2, the first manned Skylab mission. The card features Weitz's signature and two additional inscriptions, "Pilot Skylab I," and the personal notation, "Used in training."

The front side of the 6" x 8" cue card, which bears Weitz's signature, is filled with checklists concerning the medical research the astronauts were expected to self-administer aboard Skylab. The card is rectangular with slightly rounded corners. The back side of the cue card features three Velcro fasteners, which would have held it firmly in place aboard Skylab.

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