The Apollo 17 Flight Journal

by Eric Hartwell

Last updated March 20, 2006

Welcome to the Apollo 17 Flight Journal. This site was originally developed as a companion reference while researching the web site Apollo 17: The Blue Marble, also by Eric Hartwell. NASA's Apollo Flight Journal, like its companion, the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, is intended to be a resource for all those interested in the Apollo flights to the Moon, whether in a passing or scholarly capacity. This journal covers the flight of Apollo 17, eventually covering from launch to splashdown. As a "living document" it will continue to grow and evolve.

Transcript and timeline are derived from various sources as indicated. Where there are different interpretations, the sources are detailed on the Footnotes page. I have also attempted to match up the mission photos wherever possible. The most recent updates are listed in the updates file.
