This sheet of thermal-sensitive teleprinter paper was used aboard the Skylab space station during the third and final expedition to print a message uplinked by Mission Control. Skylab 3 pilot Bill Pogue writes in an accompanying letter:
The teleprinter message... has notes I wrote on the paper, which have to do with visual observations I was making and the pictures I took to document the observation.
The sheet is further certified as flown with a note by Pogue written using a pen (and ink) also used by him on Skylab.
