Description:

David Scott (American, b. 1932), Russell Schweickart (American, b. 1935), or James McDivitt (American, b. 1929)
The Lunar Module Spider awaiting extraction from the Saturn V third stage, Apollo 9, March 1969. Vintage chromogenic print on fiber-based Kodak paper with 'A Kodak Paper' watermark on the verso, image size 9 1/2 x 7 5/8 in. (24.0 x 19.2 cm), unmatted.
Condition: Good.

N.B. After liftoff on March 3, 1969, the crew performed for the first time the tricky maneuver of withdrawing the LM from the adapter on the Saturn booster's third stage where it had been sheltered during launch (Mason, p. 152). The NASA negative number is AS9-19-2919.

Literature: Reynolds, pp. 124-25.
Estimate $300-500
