For Sale: Electrical Umbilical "R" With T-Adapter
  • Electrical Umbilical used extensively in training, marked with “R” for the Right astronaut (Lunar Module Pilot).
  • Often called “cobra cable,” it connected the astronaut’s headset and bio belt to the spacecraft.
  • For reference, see the Electrical Umbilical in the artifact collection.
  • Includes a T-Adapter. Normally a control head would be connected between the cable and T-Adapter, but the T-Adapter can be connected directly as well.
  • Mating the cables required the crewman to carefully align the red dots on the connectors, to avoid damage to the pins; there was no alignment keyway.
  • The early design of these cables used white rubber, probably covered with Beta cloth. Later, black Viton high temperature rubber was used.

  • Labeled as non-flight, although all the hardware is identical to flight hardware.
  • Electrical umbilical used extensively in training. Note the clean appearance of the connector marked "P2" (which connects to the wall of the CM), and the heavily worn opposite end (handled by many astronauts in training).
  • A small cut in the outer sheath can be seen in one place.
  • This item came from the Charles Bell estate. Bell was a NASA employee at the Kennedy Space Center and a lifelong collector of space artifacts.
