This hand-out pamphlet, “Apollo 17,” was likely given to employees, the press, and the public sometime in 1972. The Apollo 17 mission from December 7-19, 1972, was NASA’s last mission to the Moon as part of the Apollo program.
Humans have not returned to the Moon since, but it is timely to look back as massive rockets capable of supporting human lunar exploration missions are once again launching or on the verge of their first test launches.
If it looks like the schedule of events for the mission had an extensive set of objectives, it did. Apollo 17 was the longest of the Apollo lunar missions, with the most extravehicular activity on the lunar surface.
