Call or text. Will trade.

This is a once in a lifetime chance to own written documents from NASA Astronaut Ken Mattingly and Engineer John Monroe. Mattingly was the astronaut that was originally scheduled for the Apollo 13 mission but was replaced two days before launch due to exposure to German Measles. After Apollo 13 was damaged by and explosion, Ken (Mattingly) stayed inside the Apollo capsule simulator to help solve problems. He later commanded Apollo 16 and few two or three Space Shuttle missions. The late John Monroe was responsible for all crews through the Apollo program and is extremely well known by all at NASA. Google either and you will find plenty. Kevin Bacon played Ken Mattingly in the movie Apollo 13. Included with the collection are numerous computer coding calculations that’s provided the direction to the moon. This is a one of a kind. Not included in the price of the Mattingly/Monroe Collection are other rare items as well including an Apollo 11 press book used by a NASA engineer responsible for mapping the moon. Included with it is the original handwritten coordinates that had to be calculated due to the Lunar Module landing 4 miles off. This is verified and authenticated with correspondence with the engineers daughter as she wrote a letter to her father on the same sheet of paper!!!! Very nice piece for $2500. If you’re a NASA collector you should come check out what I have. I will trade for various items.
