Flown printed document entitled "Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and the Use of Outer Space, including the Moon and other Celestial Bodies," 5.25 x 3, flown to the moon during the historic Apollo 11 mission. Included with the treaty is a handwritten statement of authentication written by Michael Collins, which reads: "This small copy of the "Space Treaty" was carried to the moon aboard Apollo XI, Michael Collins, January 8, 2004." Both are double-matted and framed to an overall size of 18 x 15.

As of January 2017, 107 countries are party to the Outer Space Treaty, while another 23 have signed the treaty but have not yet completed ratification. The Outer Space Treaty provides the basic framework on international space law, including the following principles: ‘the exploration and use of outer space shall be carried out for the benefit and in the interests of all countries and shall be the province of all mankind; outer space shall be free for exploration and use by all States; outer space is not subject to national appropriation by claim of sovereignty, by means of use or occupation, or by any other means; States shall not place nuclear weapons or other weapons of mass destruction in orbit or on celestial bodies or station them in outer space in any other manner; the Moon and other celestial bodies shall be used exclusively for peaceful purposes; astronauts shall be regarded as the envoys of mankind; States shall be responsible for national space activities whether carried out by governmental or non-governmental entities; States shall be liable for damage caused by their space objects; and States shall avoid harmful contamination of space and celestial bodies.’ An unusual flown relic from the Apollo 11 mission backed by direct provenance from the command module pilot.
