    Description

    Ex. Gene Cernan

    Apollo 17 Flown "Tsiolkovsky" Map from the CSM Lunar Landmark Maps Book Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Gene Cernan, Signed and Certified. A three-hole punched 10.5" x 8" lunar map on photographic paper, image size 7.5" x 7.5"; Cernan has titled it "Tsiolkovsky" with "north" pointing upwards at top. In the wide margin at right is attached a 2.25" x 3.25" certificate signed by Cernan as Apollo 17 Commander. It states (beneath an Apollo 17 mission insignia): "The Eugene A. Cernan Space Collection/ The crew used this flown Apollo 17/ - CSM Lunar Landmark Map - / to study the Moon from lunar orbit/ [signed] Gene Cernan/ Eugene A. Cernan/ Apollo 17 Commander". This page was removed from the complete CSM Lunar Landmark Maps book with a part number of "SKB32100123-322" and serial number "1001". Included is an 11" x 8.5" color photo of Gene Cernan holding the complete flown book against a beautiful background photo of the Apollo 17 CM America orbiting the moon. The caption reads: "Eugene A. Cernan, who was the Apollo 17 mission commander and the last man to walk on the Moon,/ holds the Apollo 17 'Lunar Landmark Map Book' from which the accompanying 'Tsiolkovsky' map originated." The crater shown in this lunar map is named after Soviet rocket scientist, Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, and is one of the most prominent features of the far side of the moon. Perfect for matting and framing together. Excellent.
