Lengthy souvenir autograph manuscript signed “Charles M. Duke, Jr.,” one page, 8.5 x 11, April 1999, entitled “Reflections of a Lunar Voyager.” In part: “In April, 1972, my life changed forever as I found myself riding Wernher Von Braun’s magnificent rocket into the heavens aboard Apollo 16, mankind’s fifth successful lunar landing mission. On April 20th, John Young and I landed our lunar module 'Orion' on the moon's dusty soil! Several hours later, I emerged to become only the 10th human being in history to ever stand on another world!…The epic voyages of Apollo marked a turning point in human history, when mankind first lifted off from our earthly island home, and began our long journey to the stars!” In fine condition.
