With Hand-Written Notations whilst on the Lunar Surface! + Gene Cernan Provenance


This is the actual checklist page representing the first of three rest periods on the Apollo 17 lunar landing mission. This page 3-7/3-8 is from the Apollo 17 Lunar Surface Checklist (SKB32100123-363 S/N 1001) and originates from the personal collection of the last man on the Moon, Eugene Cernan. The Lunar Surface Checklist was one of the most important and most utilized documents from the astronauts stay while on the Moon's surface.

This particular page represents Cernan and Schmitt's first night of sleep on the lunar surface (both pre-sleep and post-sleep procedures) between EVA's 1 and 2. Page 3-7 details activities related to preparing the LM for sleep. Page 3-8 was where the crew detailed their sleep time, food consumption and logged any medication taken.

Measures 8" x 5.5". Buyer will receive a photo of Cernan holding the page and a hand signed LOA attesting to the page's authenticity.

Those of you that have seen the Apollo 17 From the Earth to the Moon episode may recall Gene's opinion of sleeping on the Moon. The LOA from Cernan goes into greater detail about his strong opinion of flying all the way to the Moon and sleeping almost a full day while there. Essentially Cernan's post-flight interview and the LOA state that he thought sleeping on the Moon was a complete waste of time, but he knew that biologically, especially that first night after being awake for 20 hours, it was truly necessary.
