Speedy Tuesday: Today Marks The Return On the Last Apollo Mission On December 19th 1972Apollo 17 was a final pursuit for the Moon. The conclusion to cancel Apollo 18 and 19 missions has been done in 1971 and depending on budget cuts. Apollo 20 had been cancelled before (in 1969). The Apollo 17 mission, while is the 4g iphone to go to the Moon, was the first to possess a night launch on December 7th 1972. It place the first geologist on the Moon (Harrison Schmitt) and in addition they brought back 110.4KG of samples. The Apollo 17 mission took 12 days along with the three astronauts (Eugene Cernan, Ronald Evans and Harrisson Smith) returned safely that is known again on December 19th, 1972. Exactly 45 in the past today.The entire surface EVA there was a time 22 hours and a couple of minutes. Ample time to collect the 110.4KG of sample material, drive the Lunar Rover (landed on the Moon with Apollo 15) and perform a little further investigations.Last Man about the MoonIf you've never succeeded in doing so, I recommend you watch the documentary The Last Man on the Moon. You'll find it on Netflix (at least for now). It tells Eugene Cernan's story concerning the last pursuit for the Moon. You will also find your share of Speedmasters as movie, of course.Trapped on tape, on January 16th, a final man around the Moon - Eugene Cernan - perished. Ron Evans already died in 1990 on the early age of 56. Only Harrison Schmitt is with us.Speedmaster 145.022 Near to the MoonDuring the Apollo 17 flight, the astronauts used their Speedmaster replica watches obviously. The caliber 321 mixers were brought to NASA were also used with this mission. Ron Evans however, also used a caliber 861 Speedmaster for most scientific tests aboard. That it was that come with a tool panel. It may are already the caliber 861 Speedmaster that's nearest to the Moon, at the least from what we know today. We captured his watch not too long ago during a visit in Bienne.Speedmaster Apollo 17 Limited EditionsAs always, which sounds perhaps more negative than I intend it is, Omega commemorates the Apollo 17 with a special edition watch. We've brought up the metal version due to this year from the Apollo 17 exclusive edition here. A very nice watch that definitely looks better inside the flesh than you are on the pictures, when you need to start to see the 'blue' tones yourself. This watch is actually being sent to the boutiques and retailers and in total, there'll be 1972 of which. Corresponding while using year of the mission. Moreover, gleam gold kind of 272 pieces (which we mentioned here). At first, there were only 72 of which planned, but Omega thought we would increase that number. Some individuals were a tad upset about it, for other people it meant in addition, they gotten to acquire one. It is currently the one Speedmaster Professional for sale in gold. Omega having increased your production by 200 pieces, it may be an indication for them there is room for a gold Speedmaster Professional in the normal production. Unfortunately, the Moonwatch in gold was discontinued a few years ago.Eugene 'Gene' Cernan was an ambassador for Omega for many years, and before Possess seen him perform was at Houston, through the 2015 Speedmaster Event (report here) that has been held there. Coupled with Lovell (Apollo 13, Apollo 8, Gemini 12, Gemini 7) and Stafford (Apollo 10 replica tag , Gemini 9A, Apollo-Soyuz, Gemini 6A) he was on stage and discussed the space missions plus the role from the Speedmaster. It turned out additionally that event where I saw the command module on the Apollo 17 at the NASA visitor center in Houston and decided - inside a candid moment - to scratch my Moonwatch on the door from the module watches . It did not leave a scratch around the Command Module, but my Speedmaster carries a severe mark on the case band.Before, there was already two commemorative editions with the Apollo 17 mission cartier tank watch , both dedicated to the Last Man on the Moon, Gene Cernan. The first sort model had not been a great seller (but this might turn into a collectible edition after all), which consists of silver coin dial. Our reader and friend Larry sent us a photo of Gene Cernan and his 2012 Apollo 17 exclusive edition. This watch seemed to be restricted to 1972 pieces. If you discover one, test the fit the wrist, I really liked it.Previous Apollo XVII model presented by Gene Cernan. Photo (c) LarryIn 2002, there seemed to be another commemorative edition with the 30th anniversary of the Last man within the Moon. Limited to 3000 pieces, however only the case back revealed its connection to this mission. Then, in 1997, there seemed to be a Missions case with 22 mission patch replica watches plus a '57 re-edition. There was also an Apollo 17 mission patch model in that room, and then sold separately (100-150 pieces only). There are 50 Mission cases as a whole, however only 40 of them were officially obsessed about industry. 10 of them were chosen for other purposes.So, today marks its own day. Together with the landing in the Apollo 17 not merely the missions ended. It had been even the end of an era, the Apollo program. Individuals who are sufficiently lucky to get have received their 2017 Apollo 17 Speedmaster special, I urge someone to wear it - especially - today. To any or all people who just love other Speedmaster models, it is best to wear yours as well.Happy Speedy Tuesday!
