Apollo 13 Checklist Sells for $388,375

From the Sacremento Bee:

DALLAS -- A checklist used by Apollo 13 commander James Lovell to make calculations that helped guide the damaged spacecraft home has been sold at auction for $388,375.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions sold the checklist Wednesday as part of a batch of U.S. space program artifacts being offered during its "Space Signature Auction."

The checklist was sold to an anonymous collector. The pre-auction estimate for the checklist was $25,000.

Michael Riley, senior historian at Heritage, says that without the checklist, the crew would not have known their position in space.

On April 13, 1970, an oxygen tank exploded as the spaceship was four-fifths of the way to the moon. The crew was forced to scrap the moon mission and focus on getting back to Earth alive.

First of all a very Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American Friends!
We have added 3 new flown items this week from Apollo's 10, 15 and 17

This Cue Card flew to Lunar orbit in the Apollo 10 Lunar Module, Snoopy in May 1969. It was used by the crew as a quick reference guide for the configuration of the LM's reaction control system in preparation for docking with the Command and Service Module.
This 6x4 inch US Flag was flown to Lunar Orbit aboard the Apollo 15 Command Module, Endeavour. It comes from the personal collection of Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot, Al Worden who has inscribed the flag as ,"Flown to the moon on Apollo 15 Al Worden CMP"

These two consecutive checklist pages (4 sides) were both flown to the Lunar Surface on Apollo 17, their purpose was as a reference for the Astronauts to configure the Lunar Module's guidance and navigation systems
