Apollo 17 35mm Photos

Apollo 17 Image Library - Magazines 157/VV, 162/SS, 163/TT

Thumbnails by Eric Hartwell - January 12, 2006
Figure Captions Copyright 1995 by Eric M. Jones. Reproduced by permission.

These 35mm photos are available from the Apollo 17 Image Library of the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal but have not been processed by the Apollo Image Atlas. I thought it would be handy to add thumbnail images to the index for these three magazines.

"Some images are currently available only as low-resolution scans provided by NASA Johnson in the mid-1990s. The individual scans have TARGA filenames. Markus Mehring has compiled cross-references between those filenames and the NASA photo ID designations customarily used. Other images are available as higher resolution scans from prints and, unless otherwise credited, were provided by Kipp Teague. Beginning in 2004, NASA began to provide scans from original film and, as they become available to the ALSJ, we are using them to replace all prior versions. These are presented at 300 dpi equivalent and are labeled "OF300"."

View thru the tunnel from one spacecraft to the other during a LM inspection, probably at about 40 hours after earth launch (42:40 mission time relative to the planned launch time). View of the heat-flow experiment in the Command Module. Side view of the heat flow experiment, with Ron Evans watching it in action. First photograph of the developing zero-g convection pattern in the lefthand cell, which Jack refers to as frame 26.
Ron Evans mounted the experiment on the instrument panel at about 45 hours 26 minutes after earth launch (48:06 mission time relative to the planned launch time). At about 45 hours 48 minutes (48:28 mission time), Ron was told that the experiment Principal Investigator wanted a picture of the mounting. CapCom requested that Ron use magazine SS (162), a strong indication that the first picture was taken as a result of that request.

Additional photograph of the convection pattern in the lefthand cell.
At 26 hours 7 minutes, 42 seconds (28:47:42 mission time relative to the planned launch time), Jack Schmitt tells Houston that he took four photographs of the developing zero-g convection pattern that resulted from the application of heat to the cell on the left. He took the photographs at twenty-second intervals. This is the first of those pictures, which Jack refers to as frame 26. Data Acquisition Camera (DAC) movies were also taken.

Portrait of Ron Evans shaving during the outbound trip. View of the gibbous Earth during the outbound trip, almost certainly taken by Jack Schmitt at about 65 hours 24 minutes after earth launch (68:04 mission time relative to the planned time of launch) , as mentioned in the caption to 24072, below. Taken at f/4 with a polarizer filter vertical.

View of the gibbous earth taken with a blue filter. Astronaut wearing ALFMED light-flash detector. He is facing left. Jack Schmitt mentions four photos of Ron Evans in the ALFMED at 69:24:40 (mission time from the planned launch time).
At 65 hours 24 minutes after earth launch (68:04 mission time relative to the planned time of launch), Jack Schmitt tells CapCom Bob Parker, "Okay, Bob, we're getting ready for the ALFMED. I just took a red-filter and a blue-filter pictures, - On frame 41 now, with a 35-millimeter - pictures of the Earth. And I took them one stop smaller - that is, more open - than the lightmeter said, hoping to compensate for the small Earth. The Earth just barely fills the most inner - the innermost circle of the spotmeter. Also, there's a very strong band of clouds, shaped sort of like a narrow fir tree, with a base about 20 degrees of longitude west of Baja California, that extends up, I believe, into the vicinity of Hawaii. And the top terminates in a very strong northern cyclone pattern."

The Apollo 17 Index of 70 mm, 35 mm, and 16 mm Photographs indicates that AS17-162-24074 is Jack Schmitt. However, the transcript at 65 hours 27 minutes 26 seconds (68:07:26 mission time relative to the planned time of launch) indicates that Ron Evans is in the center seat, with Gene Cernan beyond him in the left seat. That makes Jack Schmitt the photographer/recorder in the right seat.

As Jack mentions in commentary following 115:30:55, Ron lost his scissors sometime before Gene and Jack went down to the lunar surface. To keep him from going hungry while they were gone, they gave him one of their pairs.
