Photograph Signed: " Jerry Carr". Color 8x9½, NASA photograph. GERALD P. "JERRY" CARR (1932-2020) was commander of the third and final manned visit to the Skylab Orbital Workshop. This was the longest manned flight (84 days, 1 hour, 15 minutes) in the history of manned space exploration to date. From November 16, 1973-February 8, 1974, the three-member crew, which also included Dr. Edward G. Gibson (science pilot) and William R. Pogue (pilot), successfully completed 56 experiments, 26 science demonstrations, 15 subsystem-detailed objectives and 13 student investigations during their 1,214 revolutions of the Earth. Carr, who was one of 19 astronauts selected by NASA in April 1966, had previously served in the U.S. Navy before joining the U.S. Marine Corps. Between the time of his selection and his journey into space, Carr was a member of several astronaut support crews and was involved in the development and testing of the lunar roving vehicle used during the Apollo Moon landings. Carr, who retired from the Marine Corps in 1975 and from NASA in 1977, then became involved in several aerospace-related businesses. He is married to artist/sculptor Pat Musick. Upper and lower margins have been removed. Paper residue (previous mounting) on verso (no show through). Creased at corners.
