Lot 26: STS-3 FLOWN Orbit Pocket Checklist Page Signed by Lousma

This page from an Orbit Pocket Checklist, from the personal collection of astronaut Jack Lousma, flew in space on board the Space Shuttle Columbia from March 22 to March 30, 1982. Lousma has signed the document, adding "CDR STS-3, March 22-30, 1982" and "Flown on STS-3. From my 'Orbit Pocket Checklist.'"

Checklists such as the one this page was taken from contained operation and contingency procedures to follow during system malfunctions during orbit. Measuring approximately 5" x 8", this three-hole punched and tabbed page is labeled "AC3/MNC" and numbered "5-23" on the front and "5-24" on the back.

As one of the very first space shuttle missions, STS-3 carried a crew of only two: Commander Lousma and Pilot Gordon Fullerton. After spending eight days orbiting the Earth, Columbia landed at White Sands, New Mexico, the only mission to have done so.

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

ASF reserves the right to disqualify the high bidder, to reject the bid, and to accept a bid from a lower bidder, for any reason with their discretion, which shall be exercised in good faith.
