(Probably) the most expensive instruction book in the world: Apollo 11 lunar module operating manual
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the lunar landing, it is now being auctioned at Christie’s. A total of 44 pages, including operating instructions and navigation records, are also handwritten notes by Armstrong and Aldrin, and some are written on the surface of the moon. The current estimate is between $7 million and $9 million.
But before the formal auction on July 18, the exhibition will be held in public, first in New York, then in Hong Kong, Beijing, Seattle and Washington. I wonder if Beijing can find an opportunity to see it (exhibited in Christie’s on June 13-16).
