SIGNED and INSCRIBED by GENE CERNAN: "'Ready to explore.... The Taurus Littrow for over three days of great lunar exploration— GENE CERNAN Apollo XVII - CRD "11th Man on the Moon"'

The Apollo 17 mission—of which Cernan commander—garnered a number of record-setting achievements. These included three EVAs —Extravehicular activity— totaling about 22 hours of exploration of the Taurus–Littrow valley. Cernan and Schmitt covered more than 22 miles using the Lunar Rover, and collected a record 75 pounds of geologic samples. Cernan piloted the rover on its final run, during which he clocked a maximum speed of 11.2 mph, giving him the (unofficial) lunar land speed record.
