APOLLO 17 FLIGHT PLAN FLOWN TO THE LUNAR SURFACE. Flown Apollo 17 Flight Plan, pp a-g, on 4 sheets printed recto and verso. NASA/MSC, November 6, 1972, 5 1/2 x 8 inches. Signed on each of the 8 pages by Gene Cernan including on the provenance label on the final, blank page. With a Typed Letter Signed by GENE CERNAN. Provenance: The Eugene A. Cernan Space Collection, signed label on blank 8th page and with provenance stamp beside it; Each of the 7 printed pages stamped "Landed on the Moon aboard the Apollo 17 LM 'Challenger," and signed by Cernan below. A detailed plan of the three days on the lunar surface in the Taurus-Littrow valley — the final time man would walk on the Moon. The plan lists in minute detail the tasks to be completed by both of the Lunar Module crew members, Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt, but also, in a parallel column, those of Command Service Module pilot Ronald Evans. The LM instructions begin with "activation and checkout" (the disengagement from the CSM) details the three EVAs (Extra Vehicular Activity), and concludes with the docking of the LM with the CSM, transfer of equipment and samples and preparation to jettison the LM. Accompanied by GENE CERNAN's signed provenance letter which reads in part: "During our flight, we carried a seven-page flight plan with us to the lunar surface aboard our lunar module. The flight plan is especially historic because it records both mankind's final 'Apollo' landing on the Moon, and also mankind's final moonwalk, which I accomplished on page "f" of this checklist ('EVA-3')! The flight plan spent over three days on the lunar surface housed within our Lunar Module 'Challenger,' during which time it resided within the Moon's one-sixth gravitational field and vacuum of deep space!"
