Checklist that helped save Apollo 13 on auction
Expected to draw more than 25k
Dallas — The Associated Press is reporting; a checklist upon which Apollo 13 commander James Lovell made calculations that helped guide the damaged spacecraft home will be offered on auction Nov. 30.
A Tuesday statement from Dallas-based Heritage Auctions says the item is part of a batch of U.S. space program artifacts being offered as part of a "Space Signature Auction."
Lovell used the checklist to move guidance data from the stricken Command/Service Module to the guidance system of the Lunar Excursion Module.
The Heritage statement says the checklist, now owned by Lovell, was expected to bring a winning bid exceeding $25,000.
