Two items: a vintage color glossy 9.5 x 7 photo of the Earth, affixed to the original mount, signed and inscribed on the mount in black felt tip, "To Danny—'Big & Beautiful,' Best wishes & many thanks, Gene Cernan, Apollo XVII, Dec 1972"; and a TLS signed "Gene Cernan," one page, 8 x 10.5, February 2, 1973, NASA letterhead, a letter to Dan Schaiewitz, in full: "My sincere thanks for your letter of some weeks ago. Our successes and accomplishments on Apollo XVII, Danny, are because of people like yourself—our pride I hope is your pride cause you made it all happen. One of the greatest thing[s] about the entire program is the people you meet and the friends you make. Thank you for being both. Sure missed you out there on the ladder during the EVA prep and post!" The photo is framed to a slightly larger size. In overall fine condition, with slight toning to display and subtle fading to handwriting. From the collection of Dan Schaiewitz, who worked as Extravehicular Crew Training Engineer at KSC. View Dan's many Collect Space posts here. Engineer Dan Schaiewitz gives us a fascinating firsthand glimpse into his experiences on the cutting edge of space exploration during the Apollo missions, in this podcast.
