    Apollo 16 Training-Used Quick Reference Cue Cards (Two): "SPS (Service Propulsion System) Burn Rules" and "Circ (Circularization Burn) Limits." As follows.
    SPS Burn Rules: A 5.5" x 3.75" (overall) heavyweight printed card, dated December 13, 1971 (on verso), odd-shaped and with three pieces of Velcro on the verso for mounting on the instrument panel. "CMS 15" written on verso in red felt tip. This card lists procedures for: SPS Burn; SPS Press lt; Early Shutdown; and No Shutdown. Very fine.
    Circ Limits: A 5.75" x 4.75" heavyweight printed card, dated September 4, 1972, with three pieces of Velcro on the verso for mounting on the instrument panel. "CMS 28" written on verso in blue felt tip. At top are several commands with one line crossed out (twice) in ink. At the bottom is a three-column list of "No GO'S - LOSS OF:" listing problems that would possibly prevent the astronauts from continuing the mission. The circularization burn is made while in lunar orbit before the LM departs for its trip to the surface; the purpose is to transition to a larger circular orbit from the elliptical orbit. This makes it easier to rendezvous after the LM finishes the surface activities. Signs of use, toning on front from Velcro glue, fine.
    From the collection of Steve Jurvetson.
