Description: APOLLO LUNAR MODULE LEG SECTION
A triangular three-piece support section (comprising the lock roller truss, which deploys the landing leg and holds it in place). Remarkably lightweight, mostly titanium construction. Red-stamped part numbers and quality control inspection numbers are prominently displayed along all segments. This section, flight-ready and about to be either assigned to a LM or shelved as a back-up spare, was withdrawn from flight readiness and assigned to stress testing of leg assemblies prior to the Apollo 11 mission. Sensor pads and wires (all numbered) are still attached, in the original historical context of pre-mission testing of leg assembly during varying degrees of thermal stress and crash-testing. Original written instructions on the side of the leg make specific mention of "Drop Test."
