Lot 25: Skylab FLOWN Pencil

Skylab FLOWN Pencil
Skylab FLOWN Pencil

Description

From the personal collection of the late Skylab astronaut Bill Pogue, this NASA-issued Garland mechanical pencil spent 281 days in space. The pencil was carried into space aboard the Skylab station, which launched on May 14, 1973, six months prior to the first astronauts' arrival. Pogue used the pencil in space aboard the Skylab station during Skylab 4, which lasted from Nov. 16, 1973 - Feb. 8, 1974.

The 5" long silver pencil is engraved with part number "SEB12100081-301" and serial number is "1234." There is a small piece of Velcro tape near the top of the pencil, which helped make it easier to store in outer space. One extends and retracts the pencil lead by twisting its two sections.

This lot is also accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles.
