Publisher: Life Magazine

Publication Date: 1969


This 5-page typescript of Cernan's personal account of the Apollo X voyage begins: "You know, you come a long way--a quarter of a million miles. The ground has targeted you and put you into orbit at tremendous velocities--up to about 25,000 miles an hour--and you're to coast around behind the moon at a distance of 60 miles." This document is Signed: Gene Cernan Appolo X" and is Fine condition.Cernan's second space flight was as lunar module pilot of Apollo 10, May 18-26, 1969, the first comprehensive lunar-orbital qualification and verification flight test of an Apollo lunar module. He was accompanied on the 248,000 nautical sojourn to the moon by Thomas P. Stafford (spacecraft commander) and John W. Young (commander module pilot). He made his third space flight as spacecraft commander of Apollo 17--the last scheduled manned mission to the moon for the United States--which commenced at 11:33 P.M. (CST), December 6, 1972, with the first manned nighttime launch, and concluded on December 19, 1972. With him on the voyage of the command module "America" and the lunar module "Challenger" were Ronald Evans (command module pilot) and Harrison H. (Jack) Schmitt (lunar module pilot).
