Apollo 17—Taurus-Littrow—December 11, 1972.   16mm landing film by Gary Neff. The last 3½ minutes of the sixth and final manned lunar landing filmed by the 16mm data acquisition camera through lunar module pilot Jack Schmitt's right-hand window. The video begins at an altitude of about 12,500 feet and continues until just after touchdown. Gary also has provided an orientation tutorial.

The initial view is of mountains and a section of the valley floor. More of the valley is revealed as the lunar module pitches forward slowly. Pitchover proper occurs at 37 seconds with the window now directed more towards the cratered valley floor, and more mountains appear on the right. Cernan identifies Camelot crater.

Notice after time 1:40, as they descend through 1,000 feet altitude, how the LM shadow appears as a black dot on the surface and grows clearer below 800 feet, beside the left frame of the window, just above the centre. It passes out of view at 1:55 as they go through 500 feet.

Blowing dust becomes noticeable at about 2:45 or 70 feet altitude. The landing probe shadow begins appearing at the top left of the window at time 2:56, or 40 feet. On touchdown, the LM settles backwards and, only 5 seconds after Schmitt announces engine shutoff, the dust also settles to reveal the surface.

Raising the flag: At the beginning, Jack Schmitt is closer to the camera than Gene Cernan. Gene hammers the bottom half of the flagstaff into the ground then inserts the top half, with flag attached, into the bottom half. The flag appears to wave as he moves it about. Jack moves away to take Gene's picture beside the flag.

Jack completes taking pictures of Gene beside the flag and they change positions to allow Gene to photograph Jack with the flag. Jack makes a short speech saying that the flag has flown in the Mission Operations Control Room (MOCR) in Houston since Apollo 11, and he thanks all those who have worked so hard to put them on the moon. CapCom Bob Parker replies by thanking him on behalf of the MOCR workers.

360-degree panorama beside the lunar module: While Gene works beside the lunar rover and Jack, out of view, offloads ALSEP equipment from behind the lunar module, the television camera goes sightseeing, panning slowly anti-clockwise. The scene begins with Gene loading equipment on the rover and moves westwards to reveal a flat foreground with mountains on the horizon in all directions. The lunar module shadow comes into view, and a rock on the ground interests Houston. Camera operator Ed Fendell stops panning and zooms in on the rock which has quite a long shadow, showing just how low the sun is in the sky. The pan continues and the lunar module descent stage appears and, further on, the flag emerges. Finally, the camera returns to find Gene - he has just finished mounting the Explosion Package Transporter (seismic charges) on the back of the rover. Throughout the clip, the astronauts exchange technical conversation and relaxed banter with Bob Parker in Houston.

360-degree panorama beside the lunar module: Beginning with the flag in view, the camera tracks clockwise, finds the lunar module descent stage, continues on to view the surface and completes the pan when the rover comes into view with the flag in the background. The camera pans slightly to the left now and finds Gene looking for lunar traverse maps at the rover. He waves to the camera and says, “Hello, Houston.” The soundtrack contains more technical conversations: Gene talks about the Traverse Gravimeter Experiment and Surface Electric Properties experiment; Jack talks about the Radioisotopic Thermoelectric Generator he's working on; and voices on the flight director communication loop in Houston discuss the experiments and the EVA timeline.

Jack carries the ALSEP package and goes looking for a site to deploy it, west of the lunar module. Meanwhile, Gene breaks off part of the left-rear fender of the rover when he catches the hammer in his leg pocket against it (heard, not seen in the video clip). He goes looking for a roll of duct tape under his rover seat to make a repair. Meanwhile, Jack continues west, puffing audibly under his ALSEP load - 60 pounds on the moon - and, despite his labors, the professional geologist makes detailed remarks about the rocks and soil conditions he sees while he walks - his heavy feet drag a dark trail in the soil. When he pauses to rest, he switches his suit to maximum cooling (his heart rate reaches 140 beats per minute while carrying the ALSEP). Voices on the flight director loop discuss repairing the broken fender as well as Jack's progress, suggesting he carry the ALSEP barbell in the crooks of his elbows instead of in his hands.

Gene works to repair the rover's broken fender while Jack reaches the ALSEP site. The clip opens to show Gene tearing off a strip of duct tape from a roll and applying it to the fender. Jack asks Bob Parker if they can see him and Bob says “No,” but a voice from the backroom in Houston points out that he has just appeared at the left of the picture as a white spot in the distance. The EVA controller advises the flight director that Gene is now twenty minutes behind in his timeline. The camera leaves Gene at the rover and zooms to find Jack resting and evaluating his chosen ALSEP site area, the experiments package beside him on the ground. He discusses the site with the capcom, who informs him he is ten minutes behind in his timeline. He picks up the ALSEP, moves it a few meters to his left, discusses experiment placement requirements with Bob, and the backroom Experiments team reacts to his questions and remarks.

Television coverage of early ALSEP setup: Cernan has driven 190 meters west from the lunar module to the ALSEP site and parked the rover facing east into the sun, about 18 meters northeast of the ALSEP Central Station. This places the rover battery radiators in the shade to promote battery cooling. The scene shows Jack, in front of the the South Massif, using the Universal Handling Tool (UHT) to undo bolts that fasten the Long-Period Surface Gravimeter (LSG: gravity-wave experiment) to the ALSEP pallet. The dark object on the ground to his left is the Radioisotopic Thermoelectric Generator (RTG). He moves to the right carrying the LSG and snares his boot in the cable leading to the Lunar Ejecta and Meteorite experiment. He avoids doing damage and moves further to the right, the camera following, to place the LSG on the surface, first discarding the thermal/dust cover on the ground behind him. The TELMU controller [telemetry, electrical, EVA mobility unit officer - the lunar module environment controller] tells the flight director that Schmitt has been using maximum cooling in his spacesuit for 25 minutes. The EVA controller comes on the flight director's loop repeating the information, and suggests that the capcom remind Jack of the setting he is using to prevent excessive water usage, which might shorten the EVA. A discussion follows on the loop exploring whether Jack's maximum cooling setting was deliberate or accidental. Meanwhile, Gene comes into view deploying the Heat Flow Experiment (HFE).

Jack is using his UHT to position the cable between the RTG and the Central Station while Gene, off-camera, announces that he has gotten some dirt on the heat flow experiment. He asks Houston if that matters and a brief discussion on the flight director loop results in the capcom replying to Gene that it causes no concern. Jack moves around the Central Station and hops cautiously over the cable leading to the HFE just as Gene moves the experiment, causing the cable to rise off the ground. For a moment, Jack's odd little hopping steps and the lifting of the cable off the ground look like the beginning of a lunar rope-skipping game.

Gene extends the three legs of the drill stem stand (off-camera, he says, “One leg, two legs, three legs”) while Jack moves to the ALSEP pallet and uses his UHT to release the Lunar Mass Spectrometer (LMS) from the pallet. As Jack hops sideways, carrying the LMS and extending its cable, Gene comes into view from the right carrying the drill, drill stems, and stem rack. Gene places his bundle on the ground, first the stem rack tripod, then the drill (the bag with handles), and finally the bag of stems. Before leaning the stems against the rack on the ground, he removes the cover like someone pulling a rolled map from a cardboard tube, and flings the cover off to his right. Meanwhile, the flight surgeon reports to the flight director: “BTU update for the first 15 minutes of Hour 3: CDR ten-fifty, LMP fifteen hundred.” So, Jack is burning more energy at this point.

Gene drills a hole: The drill stem package leans against the stem rack on the ground in front of Gene as he moves into position to drill a hole. The Experiments team reports to the flight director that they would like to have the next perimeter reading at the ALSEP done on the ground, and Jack reports that the Lunar Mass Spectrometer is deployed. Gene throws the drill cover away and begins boring. The tendency of astronauts on the moon to find their centre of gravity by leaning forward causes him to push forward on the drill. It enters the ground at an angle and causes concern to be voiced on the flight director loop. Bob Parker passes the concern on to Gene and he brings the drill stem back to a vertical position. The EVA controller offers further drilling guidelines to the flight director.

View of the astronauts performing separate tasks: Jack is leveling the Central Station in the background and experiencing difficulty. Gene has finished drilling and bends to remove the wrench from the stem rack. He loses balance and stumbles but recovers without falling. After attaching the wrench to the drill stem, he rotates the drill to detach it from the stem and places it on the ground. Meanwhile, conversation on the flight director loop establishes that getting the Central Station level is more critical than keeping it absolutely free of soil, and the Capcom passes the information to Jack.

Gene uses a kangaroo hop style of locomotion, bounding down the steep South Massif and kicking up sprays of soil. He joins Jack who has found an interesting white clast in a one- to two-metre boulder. Gene will shortly hammer fragments from Boulder 3 which will turn out to be the oldest rock samples returned from the moon - 4.6 billion years old. The astronauts are exceptionally buoyant in this clip and Gene is delighted with Jack's discovery, commending him repeatedly, “Good eye, good eye!” (The structure in the foreground is the lunar rover).

Jack, at left, is leaning down to take a close look at the boulder they have just sampled. When he stands, Gene kicks it and it rolls downhill towards Jack, who kicks it on a little further. Seeing the protected soil that lay under the rock, Gene proposes taking a sample of it. Jack collects the soil and pours it into the bag proffered by Gene. Because Gene is uphill of him, Jack has to stretch and hop up to pour the sample successfully into the bag. Meanwhile, the Experiments backroom informs the flight director that they would like another rake sample.

Jack is having a few clumsy moments, knocking things over, falling down, and dropping things on the ground. As the clip begins, he has knocked over the Sample Collection Bag (SCB) and scattered full sample bags on the ground. He goes down on hands and knees and replaces the sample bags in the SCB. He stands up but drops the SCB in the process. He bends down to pick it up again but stumbles and falls forward onto the ground. After he stands, some sample bags fall from his camera bracket. It is such a comedy of errors that capcom Bob Parker says, “Hey, Gene, would you go over and help Twinkletoes, please?”

Jack is standing in an interesting boulder field, beside a 2-metre high boulder, with others scattered thickly about him on the ground. He tosses a jocular remark to the television camera like a performer, “Here I am, folks, in the middle of a boulder field, just minding my own business.” He reverts immediately to the role of scientist, treating us to some arcane jargon as he hops amongst the rocks: “The mineral texture appears to be subophitic ... like a good diabase, although a little coarser ... organized with that variation in vesicle concentration.”

The rover is parked on the very steep flank of the North Massif. Gene is beside the rover, occupying about half the television camera frame, and is attaching the clip of his yo-yo to the handle of his tongs. As he moves away from the camera Jack is revealed behind him, perhaps 10-15 meters away up the steep hill, holding his scoop and taking a series of panorama pictures. In order to shoot each frame at this steeply slanted location, he bends his knees and tilts backwards to aim his lens correctly. As the television camera zooms in on Jack, his visor is up and his face is visible inside his helmet with unusual clarity (video still).

Gene comes bounding energetically down the mountain towards the rover.

Jack is in the middle distance, uphill from the television camera. He kicks the half-metre Station 8 boulder and sends it rolling down the slope. It travels a few meters with some further encouragement and finally comes to rest in a shallow depression. He climbs back uphill to where he found the rock so he can sample the ground on which it lay. Gene walks right in front of the camera, which begins a pan to the right to follow him.

The fragment flies downhill about 10 meters and Gene follows to retrieve it with his tongs. As he climbs back uphill the camera follows and finds Jack on the ground examining the rock closely and giving a detailed technical description of it. They bag the rock fragment and Jack climbs back up to a standing position.

Jack is uphill of the rover, raking the soil for samples. The gnomon is on the ground just to his right. When he finishes and lifts the rake, a long dark shower of lunar dust spills to the ground. Gene enters the frame from the right bearing a sample bag to collect Jack's samples. The soundtrack contains debate about procedure on the flight director loop and, although Jack is the astronaut in the camera frame, it is Gene's voice (off-camera) that dominates the soundtrack in this clip.

While Gene looks on and readies a sample bag, Jack uses the rake to scoop a kilogram sample of soil. The audio track is busy with the triple overlap of astronauts' voices, the CapCom, and backroom discussion on the flight director loop in mission control. Bob Parker asks the astronauts to finish work at this station in 11 minutes, but to dig a trench and shoot a photographic panorama first, if possible.

This is a brief transmission from the rover as Gene drives it to the VIP site, its final parking spot. As he drives, a few seconds of television reaches earth and we see evidence of the uneven terrain as the rover rides up and down and side to side, causing some of its parts to jiggle, such as the high gain antenna. The lunar module pops in and out of the picture in the background, to the left of the picture.

The rover is parked at the VIP site behind the lunar module. Jack emerges as a small figure, 145 meters away, to the right of the lunar module. He pleads with Gene to let him throw his geology hammer. The commander concedes his permission and warns him not to hit the lunar module or the ALSEP. Jack flings it into the air and careful observation of the clip reveals the spinning hammer in flight, barely visible against the mountain in the background, and then against the black sky. Jack is thrilled with the long flight of the hammer and walks back to the lunar module.

Lunar lift-off film. (Freeze-frame picture series: a visual dissection of ignition and lift-off; 395KB) The television camera was mounted on the rover which Gene parked about 145 meters east of (behind) the lunar module. The ascent stage ignites and climbs, spacecraft foil and dust flying in all directions. Ed Fendell in Houston anticipates exactly the timing of ignition, lift-off, and the rate of climb, and the camera tilts to follows the ascent. At pitchover, the throat of the ascent engine points down at the camera and its combustion is visible as a small bright light. The clip ends as Challenger reaches an altitude of 1,500 feet.

Post launch clip, 2½ minutes after ignition. The rover television camera pans across the moonscape showing the South Massif, the discarded lunar module descent stage with the SEP pallet resting against the plus-Y (north) landing strut, the flag (still standing), and the North Massif. The audio track carries the voices of Cernan, Schmitt, and capcom Gordon Fullerton. Gene announces they have climbed to 25,000 feet.


Return to Earth

Command module pilot Ron Evans spacewalks during the return to Earth, recorded by a 16mm sequence camera. He emerges from America's open hatch and pulls himself along the service module handholds to retrieve data and film cassettes (lunar sounder data, panoramic camera film, and mapping camera film) from the scientific instrument module (SIM) bay - experiments which operated in lunar orbit. He notes that paint on the service module is blistered and he can peel flakes off with his fingers.
