Lot Details
MANNED LUNAR LANDING PROFILES—INSCRIBED.
EACH CRITICAL STEP OF MAN'S VOYAGE TO THE MOON.
Lunar Landing Mission Profile. Large lithograph, folded. 11 x 30 inches. U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) identification "8 69 – 80 3."

Undoubtedly one of the best visual representations of the flight procedures required to accomplish the Apollo lunar landing. There are 85 labeled steps illustrating the complexity of a lunar mission. The outward bound journey starts with the Saturn V launch and placement of CSM / LM into earth orbit, the engine burn to place these vehicles on a trajectory to the moon. Then it depicts possible mid-course corrections and the all important insertion into lunar orbit. The method to accomplish the moon landing and return are shown with dual lunar drawings. The remaining events are the steps to leave lunar orbit and return to Earth with a splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.
