Lunar Module Eagle Ascent Stage Returning to Command Module Columbia. LM is performing a roll to prepare for docking. The planet Mars is to right of Earth.
After 2½ hours of surface exploration, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin returned to the LM “Eagle” for rest, eating, and checkout of the vehicle in preparation for liftoff. The LM was a two part spacecraft. Its lower or descent stage had the landing gear, engines, and fuel needed for the landing. When the LM blasted off the Moon, the descent stage served as the launching pad for its companion ascent stage, which was also home for the two astronauts on the surface of the Moon. The LM was full of gear with which to communicate, navigate, and rendezvous. It also had its own propulsion system, and an engine to lift it off the Moon and send it on a course toward the orbiting CM. In this photograph, the ascent stage is seen back dropped by Earth just prior to its rendezvous with the CM.
We're offering a 11x11 inch print of the photograph for $150, matted to 16x20 inch board and ready to frame, framed in silver for an additional $100, wood for $250. This print at this price is offered through July 31. We'll be taking orders until then, and shipping them out by August 15, 2019.
