  • Jim Irwin signed official Apollo 15 NASA photo

James Irwin (1930 – 1991) was an American aviator and NASA astronaut who became the eighth man to walk on the moon during the Apollo 15 mission in July 1971.

Irwin suffered a “minor” heart attack during the return to Earth.

Apollo 15 (July 26, 1971 – August 7, 1971) was the fourth manned mission to land on the Moon. The mission was notable for the first use of the Lunar Rover, enabling the crew to explore further than previous missions.

Commander Scott and Lunar Module Pilot Irwin spent two days and 18 hours on the Moon, including 18.5 hours outside the Lunar Module.

The crew discovered the Genesis Rock – a 4.5 million-year-old rock, dating to around the time the Moon formed. It was the oldest rock found on the Moon at that point.

A superb official colour 10 x 8 NASA photo of Irwin saluting the flag on the lunar surface.

Signed and inscribed in black felt tip “His love from the Moon, Jim Irwin.”

Particularly attractive to collectors as it is a rare undedicated example.

In very good condition.
