So Buzz Aldrin is to sell the instruction sheets he used during the first Moon landing.

The notes were part of Aldrin's own manual used while Armstrong piloted the Lunar Module Eagle towards the Moon in 1969. Also included in the sale is a second-by-second account by Aldrin of the fraught final minutes as the Module approached the surface of the moon. It reveals that the first words spoken on the surface were "Contact Light", spoken by Aldrin to confirm touch down.




He is able to sell due to a change in the law last year which now allows astronauts to retain legal ownership of items they have kept from missions.

The instruction sheets are to be sold in Bonham's New York on March 25th.

I think it would be pretty cool to own this little piece of history, doubt I could afford it tho

That's nothing...the guy took Communion on the moon - selling out happened a long time ago.

Makes you wonder why he needs the money?

OK, I'm slow (or ignorant). Why is he a traitor to all humanity?

Shouldn't the Air and Space Museum in D.C. get first crack at buying these, to be put on display? It's too bad they're going to go into someone's private collection, to be seen and handled by a guy and his friends. On the other hand, I'd take the material in two lunar heartbeats and happily horde it (doesn't make it right though). Buzz, think of the children!!! Or at least the Trekkies.
