Catalogue Note

FLOWN ON APOLLO 17, THE LAST MISSION TO LAND ON THE MOON. A critical piece of hardware used on humanities' last moon landing, by mission commander Eugene Cernan, Lunar Module Pilot Harrison Schmitt, and Command Module Pilot Ron Evans. Cernan and Evans spent 3 days on the moon, spending nearly 22 hours walking and driving the Lunar rover, collected a record 112 kgs of lunar specimens, and with Evans performing a spacewalk during the trip back to Earth to retrieve film and experiment packages from the Service module.

It is interesting to note that the pre-flight Stowage list indicates that the Part number for this item is "V36-601632-211", with the "211" being the number on the bag that has been crossed out by hand and replaced with "111." The Temporary parts removable tag lists the new number ending in "111", as does the Rockwell tag.
