A one-of-a-kind offering of the only complete set of flown microfilm lunar bibles, carried on board the Apollo 12, 13, and 14 missions. Unique in its own right, this collection is made even more special for several reasons: only one single bible was carried on the Apollo 12 mission (as mentioned by Alan Bean in a 1984 article in the Smithsonian Air and Space magazine), an Apollo 13 bible destined for the lunar surface and returned to Earth after its harrowing mission, and the Apollo 14 bible, carried by Edgar Mitchell to the lunar surface, and later presented directly to the family of astronaut Edward White after its return to earth, and fully documented by Apollo Prayer League founder John Stout. 1,305 more words
