Mint Stamps Honor Final Mission to the Moon
NASA launched its final mission to the Moon on December 7, 1972. The Apollo 17 crew reached the moon on December 11 and conducted their first spacewalk. Apollo 17 broke several records: the longest moon landing, the longest total moonwalks, the largest lunar sample, and the longest time in lunar orbit. After 12 days, Apollo 17 returned to Earth safely on December 19.
