Rare NASA Kennedy Space Center APOLLO 13 Launching Special Viewing Pass #2283. Unnamed, but most likely presented to Cleveland Newspaper Reporter Joseph Sikosky as it came with his APOLLO Soyuz Pass (see link below). The front of the pass is a picture of golden stallions racing through space above the Earth’s orbit with the sun and moon in the background, reading: “APOLLO XIII EX LUNA, SCIENTIA” and across the top of the pass it reads: “KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, NASA”. The reverse of the pass reads: “The National Aeronautics and Space Administration cordially welcomes you to the launch of Apollo 13. (Signed) Kurt H. Debus, Director – Kennedy Space Center, NASA. This credential is issued to the bearer for his sole, exclusive, personal use, and is not transferable. After launch, it may be kept as a souvenir of the mission.” The pass is #’d 2283.
