Description


Typed statement signed "Charles M. Duke, Jr., Apollo 16 'Moonwalker,'" one page, 8.5 x 11, February 18, 1999, in part: "On July 20, 1969, I was the Apollo 11 Mission Control 'CAPCOM' for Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin during mankind's first landing on the moon! As such, I became the first person in history to ever speak with humans on another world, as I confirmed their report of a successful landing with my response, 'We Copy You Down, Eagle!' In April, 1972, I experienced the dream firsthand when I flew to the moon aboard Apollo 16, and became only the 10th person to ever stand on another world! Fellow Moonwalker John Young and I spent three extraordinary days living on the moon in the Lunar Module 'Orion,' and exploring the ancient Descartes Highlands in our Lunar Rover! Consider awakening each day to the shock that you're on the moon, or pondering the thought of being one of only two men populating an entire world!" Lower right corner bears a small photo of Duke holding the statement. In very fine condition.
