Description


Flown single-sided Command Module cue card from the Apollo 17 mission, 5.75 x 4.75, stamped on the reverse with flight certification, “Flown to lunar orbit aboard the Apollo 17 CM ‘America,’” and signed in blue ink, “Gene Cernan.” The cue card is headed “CIRC Limits” and lists several commands, followed by three columns of “No Go” malfunctions that would prevent the astronauts from proceeding with the scheduled ‘circularization burn.’ In fine condition. The circularization burn (CIRC) occurred while the Command Module and Lunar Module were connected, and as the latter prepared for its descent to the lunar surface. The purpose was to get into a circular orbit around the moon to ensure an easier rendezvous after the astronauts finished their surface operations. An exceptional astronaut-certified piece from this historic final Apollo mission. Pre-certified Zarelli Space Authentication.
