I have an EKG/ECG of the NASA Apollo 8 crew. The EKG shows the three man crews normal heart rate and their heart rate as they flew around the moon.

EKG printout is sealed and mounted on a 18" x 14" board. Placard reads:

Apollo 8 December 21, 1968. Man's First Flight To The Moon. Astronauts Frank Borman James Lovell William Anders
Any info about this or the value?

I'm no doctor but the upper three traces look like respiration while the bottom ones appear to be ECG's. So it doesn't appear to be a comparison of heart rates in lunar orbit versus other times.

A very interesting piece nonetheless!

I believe there was one of Armstrong during his walk on the Moon that went up for sale at the recent RR auction and was withdrawn when the US Federal Government attempted to confiscate it (since it was not, per se, an astronaut owned item). You can contact RR to find out what happened.
