Description

Phenomenal Apollo 17 lunar surface high-relief topographical map, 1:40000 scale, approximately measures 45 x 31, and portrays the dramatic terrain of the Taurus-Littrow valley, the landing site of the Lunar Module Challenger. The map notes the "Approximate Target Point" to center, surrounding craters like "Powell," "Shakespeare," "Sherlock," and "Cochise," as well as the region's four main mountains: North and South Massif, Family, and Bear. Prepared and published for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration by the Defense Mapping Agency Topographic Center, Washington, DC. In very good condition, with notable cracks and missing portions to left and right edges; the aesthetic quality of the piece remains strong and highly presentable.
