The Apollo 17 Flight Journal
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.
