Apollo 11 MFA Booklet left on the Moon by Jim Irwin


The MFA booklet was produced at the Kennedy Space Center "several months before Apollo 11 ... to honor outstanding industry and NASA workers who contributed to the Apollo man-on-the-moon project through Apollo 11." The article linked below was written by Jerry Lipman and appeared in the December 1976 issue of Space World Magazine. It reproduces the booklet and details how Jim Irwin deposited a microfilm copy of the MFA Booklet on the Moon during Apollo 15. The article is reproduced with permission from the author. Scans provided by Joel Powell. See, also, the discussion related to photos Jim took of the microfilm canister and other memorial items, A15-88-11867 to 11871.
