Description


Collection of six flown cue cards carried into lunar orbit on board the Command Module America during the Apollo 17 mission. Each card measures 2.75 x 4.25, and is headed “Manual SIVB TLI” 0-2 and “Nominal SIVB TLI” 0-2. All six cards are also labeled, “Dec. 6 Launch…9/4/72,” and two have numerical notations in Cernan’s hand. The reverse of each card also bears his personal signed flight-certification stamp, and three small swatches of Velcro. In fine condition.

These six TLI cue cards were for the Trans Lunar Insertion burn that took place on Apollo 17, which boosted the spacecraft onto a coast to the Moon. These cards showed the data that would appear on the DSKY display for the Apollo Guidance Computer; during a normal burn, the Nominal cards would be used, and in the event of a failure of the automatic sequencer, the Manual cards would be used. Incredibly significant, these cards represent the operation of the last TLI burn that propelled humans to the Moon in the 20th century. Pre-certified Steve Zarelli.
