A black and white, 10x8", posed photograph of the Apollo 7 crew standing next to a model of their module spacecraft, signed above and across their respective image in bold blue felt pen ink by Cunningham and Schirra. Even though Apollo's larger cabin was more comfortable than Gemini's, eleven days in orbit took its toll on the astronauts. Tension with Commander Schirra began with the launch decision, when flight managers decided to launch with a less than ideal abort option for the early part of the ascent. As of 2009, Cunningham is the only surviving member of the crew. Eisele died in 1987 and Schirra in 2007.
