EXITING THE LUNAR MODULE.
PAIR OF INGRESS/EGRESS PORCH HANDRAILS.
Aluminum alloy handrails. Each 5 feet in length, 1 inch in diameter.
Provenance: Property of an institution.
The porch handrails are attached to the egress platform located directly outside of the forward hatch of the Lunar Module. It is through this hatch that the astronauts and equipment are transferred from the Lunar Module onto the Lunar surface. The astronauts hold onto the handrails while traversing the egress platform before descending the ladder onto the Lunar surface.
