Eugene 'Gene' Cernan 'Apollo 17 Astronaut and 11th and Last Man on The Moon' Astronaut Signed Card Autograph £175.00
This is a superb hand signed 5" x 3" white card by the late American Astronaut who flew on Gemini 9, Apollo 10, and Apollo 17 missions. He was the 11th man to walk on the surface of the Moon and remains the last to do so.
Eugene Andrew "Gene" Cernan, CAPT, USN ( March 14, 1934 – January 16, 2017) was an American astronaut, naval aviator, electrical engineer, aeronautical engineer, and fighter pilot, and was the last human to walk on the Moon, in 1972.
He traveled into space three times: as Pilot of Gemini 9A in June 1966, as Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 10 in May 1969, and as Commander of Apollo 17 in December 1972, the final Apollo lunar landing. On Apollo 17, Cernan became the eleventh person to walk on the Moon and the most recent man to walk on the Moon, since he was the last to re-enter the Lunar Module Challenger after the mission's third and final extravehicular activity (EVA). Cernan was also a backup crew member for the Gemini 12, Apollo 7 and Apollo 14 space missions.
