Description

Color glossy 20 x 16 photo of the Apollo 16 landing site in the Descartes Highlands, which shows the lunar module and rover on the moon’s surface, with the American flag to the far right, signed in the lower border in black felt tip, “Charlie Duke, Apollo 16 LMP,” who adds, “Apollo 16 spent more than 20 hours exploring the moon. This involved emplacement and activation of scientific equipment and experiments, the collection of nearly 213 pounds of rock and soil samples and the evaluation and use of rover-2 (our lunar car) over the roughest and blockiest surface yet encountered on the moon.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from Beckett Authentication Services. An immersing, wide-frame portrayal of the lunar surface, further enhanced by Duke’s wonderfully detailed inscription.
