+ - Armstrong EKG Readings During Moon Landing Up for Auction->

Submitted by Okian Warrior
Okian Warrior (537106) writes "New Hampshire based RR Auction is selling the EKG of Neil Armstrong's heartbeat taken when he stepped onto the moon, among many other items of space and aviation historical interest. "It was really slow on the way down, while Aldrin's was racing" described Gerald Schaber, geologist, who had the task of monitoring Armstrong's heartbeat during the final famous moments of the Apollo 11 landing.

Wikicollecting notes that Armstrong's EKG previously went for a cool $12,500 at an auction in April of 2004.

Auction begins May 16th."

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
