A P O L L O   17  (Cernan, Evans & Schmitt)


The Apollo program was designed to land humans on the Moon and bring them safely back to Earth. Six of the missions (Apollos 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17) achieved this goal. Apollos 7 and 9 were Earth orbiting missions to test the Command and Lunar Modules, and did not return lunar data. Apollos 8 and 10 tested various components while orbiting the Moon, and returned photography of the lunar surface. Apollo 13 did not land on the Moon due to a malfunction, but also returned photographs. The six missions that landed on the Moon returned a wealth of scientific data and almost 400 kilograms of lunar samples. Experiments included soil mechanics, meteoroids, seismic, heat flow, lunar ranging, magnetic fields, and solar wind experiments.

Apollo 17 crew signed photo

This image of the Apollo 17 night launch is dedicated to a long time friend of our pioneer astronauts, Jim Rathman.  Jim owned a South Florida  automobile dealership and was the supplier of the Corvettes that so many of our pioneer astronauts were fond of driving.  In addition to being a major supporter of the manned space program, Jim was a champion race car driver (suggest you Google for his history. 


This image has been inscribed, "To Jim Rathman: Your interest and enthusiam in our nation's space program will never be fortgotten.  This was a memorable moment for us and we're sure it was for you - Best personal wishes from the crew of Apollo XVII....Gene, Ron, Jack".  In addition, under the photo is written, "Apollo XVII  6-19 Dec 1972" and also signed on bottom of the mat. 


This is a very special signed image from a grateful flight crew to a well known figure who was closely associated with many astronauts in a most personal way.  Mat measures 16" x 20" and photo measures 11" x 14".
