News

NEW YORK (KETK) – As the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11’s historic landing on the moon draws near, several items from the 1969 mission are going up for auction.

The auction is being hosted by Christie’s New York on July 18.

Around 200 items related to space exploration will be on display before being sold.

The headline item is expected to be an Apollo 11 lunar module timeline book, which was used by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin to navigate the surface of the moon.

It is said to contain moon dust and over 100 annotations by the astronauts. The book was the first writing by a human being in an extraterrestrial body.
