The unit was used to convert IN FLIGHT Image Data...

Any existing Artifacts from NASA's APOLLO Program are highly sought after. Especially 11 & 13 in which this unit was used on.

With the use of "FLOWN" in capital letters in the title of this listing, plus the above language, the seller is really trying to create the impression that it was, well, flown. Really it used on the ground to scan images taken in space. Saying it was "used on" Apollo 11 and 13 is like saying my bookshelves were used on those missions, since they hold items flown on them.

Kind of an interesting item, but the weaselly selling tactics take the fun out of it.

All times are CT (US)
