Description


Scarce Apollo 17 landing site lunar 3-D topographical map. This massive plastic map measures 44 x 33 and is an exact 1:12,500 scale reproduction of the landing site at Taurus-Littrow. The landing site is identified on the map as “Approximate target point,” with other lunar landmarks including Horatio, Camelot, and Shakespeare. Produced by the US Army Typographical Command at the request of the Department of Defense, this map was used to familiarize the Apollo moonwalkers with what they would see when they approached the landing site. The map also gave them a view of the surrounding terrain since they would have mainly tunnel vision during landing. In very good condition, with several cracks and chips to edges. RR Auction COA.
