Flown .5 x .25 swatch of Eastman Kodak Type 3400 Panatomic-X film carried to the lunar surface aboard the Lunar Module Eagle during the historic Apollo 11 mission. The swatch is affixed to a 7.25 x 3.5 presentation certificate signed in ballpoint by Richard W. Underwood, Supervisory Aerospace Technologist at the Johnson Space Center, reading: "The attached film was carried onboard Apollo 11 on the historic flight to the moon, July 16-24, 1969. It was carried to the surface of the moon by the astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin in the Lunar Module 'Eagle' on July 20-21, 1969." Underwood was responsible for developing the Apollo photographs—in fact, he was the first person to view every photograph from the Gemini, Apollo, Skylab, Apollo-Soyuz, and the first 23 space shuttle missions.
