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
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
