    GENE CERNAN

    Gene Cernan Signed Large Apollo 17 Lunar Surface Color Photo with Extensive Handwritten Quote. A 20" x 16" silk finish photo on Kodak Endura paper of the U.S. flag and its shadow on the barren lunar surface. It is boldly signed in black felt tip with the last words he (or anyone else) ever spoke while standing on the lunar surface: "I'd like to just say what I believe/ history will record - That America's challenge/ of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow./ And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow,/ we leave as we came and, God willing/ as we shall return, with peace and hope/ for all mankind./ God Speed the Crew of Apollo XVII/ Gene Cernan/ Apollo 17". This photo and these words capture the essence of man's journeys to the moon, the last of which was Apollo 17. Outstanding display piece. Excellent.
