Apollo 8 Flown Flag and Apollo 11 Autographs

Here is the latest newsletter from Moonpans.com for January 2014

We have been busy framing two very nice items


Aside from Apollo 11, Apollo 8 was the most historic and daring of all the Apollo missions, being the first mission ever to send humans away from their home planet and into Lunar Orbit. And so flown items from this mission are very sort after. And none more so than a US Flag, this one affixed to an Official NASA presentation card and framed using archival materials and UV protective glazing



A magnificent large framed piece featuring a Neil Armstrong signature in black ink on white card and a 20x16 inch photo signed by Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, showing the Lunar Module ascent stage returning from the lunar surface to re-dock with Collins in the Command Module all while the Earth rises above the lunar horizon.

Astronauts Should Ski The Moon

Astronauts heading to the Moon should learn the art of cross-country skiing, a scientist who flew on the last lunar Apollo mission claims.

Harrison Schmitt, part of the 1972 Apollo 17 crew, said it would allow them to explore faster and more easily. Addressing scientists in San Francisco, he said his knowledge of Nordic skiing had allowed him to glide effortlessly across the dusty lunar surface.

The US space agency (Nasa) will send manned missions to the moon by 2020. "When you're cross-country skiing, once you get a rhythm going, you propel yourself with a toe push as you slide along the snow," explained Dr Schmitt. "On the Moon, in the main you don't slide, you glide above the surface. But again, you use the same kind of rhythm, with a toe push."
