SHEPARD FLIES AGAIN, ALMOST A FULL 10 YEARS SINCE FREEDOM 7.
CREW SIGNED APOLLO 14 LAUNCH CLOSE-UP PHOTOGRAPH.
Black and white photograph, 10 by 8 inches, with printed NASA/Kennedy Space Center press release captions on verso. Shepard was reinstated to flight status after an operation corrected his inner ear disorder.
SIGNED BOLDLY by ALAN SHEPARD, STUART A. ROOSA, and EDGAR MITCHELL.
A remote sequence camera at the 360 foot launch tower takes this image of the Apollo 14 Saturn V rocket just after lift-off from the pad. Swing arms providing electrical and other connections to the Saturn V are seen moving away from the rocket as it begins to roar past the launch tower. Apollo 14's launch was delayed some 40 minutes to prevent another "lightning strike incident" like that of Apollo 12.
