Astronaut Lunar Module Pilot – Apollo XIV. PRISTINE 8-1/2″ x 11″ hand-written letter on personal stationery dated May 2, 1994 AUTHENTICALLY signed by deceased NASA moon-walking astronaut. This letter contains unique space-related content and provides an unusual perspective from one who has set foot on another world’s surface. The letter reads as follows. As you and your children face the heavens, recognize that our knowledge of the universe is quite incomplete. Science still knows little about what is “mind”. And religions still cling to archaic dogmas about what is “reality”. Somewhere between the two, we will someday understand. Nothing “out there” is quite what we currently believe it to be. This document is BOLDLY executed in blue felt-tip pen, as shown. The condition of this item is NRMT- MT, with typical mailing folds and NO defects or detracting conditions. This item has been authenticated by PSA/DNA, and comes with a letter of authenticity and verifiable certification number of T00152, as shown. This item is GUARANTEED WITHOUT TIME LIMIT as to AUTHENTICITY and REPRESENTATION. As the lunar module pilot of Apollo XIV, he spent over nine hours moon-walking on the Fra Mauro formation, making him the sixth person to walk on the lunar surface. Together with Apollo XIV commander ALAN SHEPARD, he holds the record for the longest ever moon-walking session (9 hours and 17 minutes). Hand-written letters from MOON-WALKING astronauts with space-related or mission-related content are becoming increasingly more difficult to obtain, as the demand far surpasses the limited supply.
