Created By The Mercury 7 Astronauts
Give your child the ultimate show-and-tell: Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise! Win this lot and Haise will visit your child's clasroom for a once-in-a-lifetime occasion they'll never forget!
Your child will come face to face with one of only 24 brave men in the world who have gone to the moon! Prior to the class visit, Haise will meet with your child and he or she will have the exclusive opportunity to get to know him during a personalized one-on-one conversation.
Next, imagine the joy on your child's face as they walk into the classroom with their famous astronaut at their side to the delight of their peers. After your child introduces their new friend to the class, Haise will fascinate his young audience with his gripping, first-hand story of Apollo 13.
The students' eyes are sure to widen as Haise wows them with his true and amazing tale of nearly being lost in space, and inspires them with the story of how teamwork, book-smarts and perseverance finally led the Apollo 13 crew home safely to Earth.
Then, your child will assist Haise with a special question-and-answer session, help him hand out a commemorative Apollo 13 decal to all of their classmates, and then join the space hero for lunch at the school cafeteria or a local restaurant (accompanied by the student's parents).
When the day is done, Haise will present a special gift and personalized autographed picture to your child and pose alongside them for a one-of-a-kind photograph.
Haise served as the Lunar Module Pilot on the historic Apollo 13 mission. He also flew several test flights of the prototype Space Shuttle Enterprise in the late 1970s. He is one of only 24 people to have ever flown to the Moon. In 1970, President Richard Nixon presented Haise with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
This lot is only applicable to a classroom appearance and must be within the continental United States. An ASF representative will accompany Haise during this experience. The actual date of the event, not to exceed one year after the close of the auction, will be determined by Haise's availability. ASF reserves the right to disqualify the high bidder, to reject the high bid, and to accept a bid from a lower bidder, for any reason within their discretion, which shall be exercised in good faith.
