Apollo 14 - Edgar Mitchell on the Lunar Surface

Catalogue Note

Boldly SIGNED and INSCRIBED by MITCHELL: "I have been in his brightest shining heaven and seen such things that no man once returned from there has wit or skill to talk about. "Paradiso" Dante EDGAR MITCHELL 6th man on the moon Apollo 14." 

After landing in the Fra Mauro formation on 5 February 1971 — the original site planned for Apollo 13's aborted lunar landing — Mitchell and CDR Alan Shepard conducted two lunar EVAs. In addition to the standard set of surface experiments, Shepard famously brought along a makeshift six iron golf club and took a couple of swings, becoming the first "Lunar Golfer." As Mitchell remarked at the time: "Beautiful day for a game of golf."
