Lot 5: Apollo 13 G&N Dictionary Page Signed by Lovell and Haise

This page from an Apollo 13 / LM-7 Flight Crew Guidance and Navigation (G&N) Dictionary was used in astronaut training in Lunar Module Simulator 2 (LMS-2) at Kennedy Space Center, Florida for the planned lunar landing of the Apollo 13 mission. The page has been signed by Apollo 13 Commander James Lovell and Lunar Module Pilot Fred Haise. Haise has added the inscription "Used in training on Apollo 13."

The G&N Dictionary from which this page was taken was prepared by the Guidance and Control Section, Spacecraft Systems Branch, Flight Crew Support Division of NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center. It was used by the astronauts as they perfected the procedures for landing on the moon.

The three-hole punched 5.5" x 8" page is printed on lightweight cardstock. It is dated "Basic Date: 1/5/70, Changed 1/18/70." The front side, labeled PGNS-33, bears the astronauts' signatures and inscription in black. The back of the page is labeled PGNS-34. Each side includes the printed index tab labeled P51-57.

As Lunar Module Pilot, Haise especially used a G&N Dictionary during training. An identical dictionary was stowed on board the Apollo 13 Command Module for the flight.

The dictionary page, alongside a photo of Haise in LMS-2, has been matted and framed using archival methods. The final presentation measures approximately 13.5" x 17.5" and is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles.
