A P O L L O   7   (Schirra, Cunningham and Eisele)


The Apollo program was designed to land humans on the Moon and bring them safely back to Earth. Six of the missions (Apollos 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17) achieved this goal. Apollos 7 and 9 were Earth orbiting missions to test the Command and Lunar Modules, and did not return lunar data. Apollos 8 and 10 tested various components while orbiting the Moon, and returned photography of the lunar surface. Apollo 13 did not land on the Moon due to a malfunction, but also returned photographs. The six missions that landed on the Moon returned a wealth of scientific data and almost 400 kilograms of lunar samples. Experiments included soil mechanics, meteoroids, seismic, heat flow, lunar ranging, magnetic fields, and solar wind experiments.

Apollo 7 Crew Signed Photo Apollo 7 crew signed NASA Red Stamped photo from the personal collection of former NASA figure William H. Todd.  Bill's career in the aerospace industry spanned some of America's most pioneering aerospace programs including the P-51 Mustang, X-15, B-70, Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Skylab and Space Shuttle programs. 

He amassed quite a collection over his carreer as a result of his work and this photo was dedicated to him by the Apollo 7 crew.  Shows some discoloration from being framed all these years but still in very good condition and absolutely authentic.  It's a NASA red stamped photo and measures 8x10.  This is getting to be a difficult crew signed photo to find these days.
