S72-55070 (7 Dec. 1972) —- The huge, 363-feet tall Apollo 17 (Spacecraft 114/Lunar Module 12/Saturn 512) space vehicle is launched from Pad A, Launch Complex 39, Kennedy Space Center (KSC), Florida, at 12:33 a.m. (EST), Dec. 7, 1972. Apollo 17, the final lunar landing mission in NASA’s Apollo program, was the first nighttime liftoff of the Saturn V launch vehicle. Aboard the Apollo 17 spacecraft were astronaut Eugene A. Cernan, commander; astronaut Ronald E. Evans, command module pilot; and scientist-astronaut Harrison H. Schmitt, lunar module pilot. Flame from the five F-1 engines of the Apollo/Saturn first (S-1C) stage illuminates the nighttime scene. A two-hour and 40-minute hold delayed the Apollo 17 launching.

The final geologic training for the Apollo 14 crew was held at the SPE Branch’s new Black Canyon Crater Field in Verde Valley, Arizona on 16 November 1970; (a) Al Shepard (l) and Ed Mitchell pulling the Modular Equipment Transport (MET) (referred to as the “Golf Cart” by the crew) on a blocky surface in the Black Canyon Crater Field. The MET idea was conceived by Al Shepard for their use (to carry all of the tools, cameras, sample bags, rocks, and Al’s “Golf club”) for the trek up to Cone Crater during their upcoming Apollo 14 mission.
