Quotes

#Quote
1It's an overwhelming experience to watch a sunset on the east coast of the United States and the sun rise on the east coast of Australia, almost at the same instant.
2You find the Earth is revolving, very mysteriously and yet very majestically, on an axis you can't see. All of a sudden, as the Earth turns, you look at Australia and Asia and Europe and the entire continent of Africa. You can look from the icebergs of the north to the snow-covered mountains of the pole at the south. It's just an awe-inspiring, overpowering experience.
3And then you get to the Moon, and all of a sudden, for the first time, you're standing on something that is not Earth. You can climb the highest mountain of this planet of ours, or swim to the depths of the deepest ocean, and you're still on planet Earth. But when you go to the Moon, you're on another body in this universe; it's solid, and you can walk on it. And then you look over your shoulder, and you're surrounded not by a blue sky, but by a black sky. You're in sunlight, surrounded by the blackest black you can conceive in your mind. No one confused the blackness with darkness; it's a blackness that is the endlessness of space and time. And the Earth is three-dimensional in this blackness; it's dynamic and alive. It captures you, but you don't understand it; you can't show it to anybody, but you know it exists, because you saw it with your own eyes. Science and technology got you there, but it's like you're standing on a plateau where science has met its match.
4[about the Apollo 17 launch being the first to occur at night] In order to get to where you want to land in December, and get the sun behind you at the proper angle when you land, it required us to launch at night. There had never been a manned flight launching at night, so we started out with a big bang. That night launch was one of the more phenomenal things people remember about Apollo 17. I heard all kinds of descriptions of what it was like, such as, "It was like a thousand suns." They could see it from Miami to Atlanta, up and down the coast.
5Houston, the Challenger has landed! (Dec. 6, 1972, from the Moon)
6As I step off at the surface of Taurus-Littrow, I'd like to dedicate the first steps of Apollo Seventeen to all those who made it possible. Oh, my golly. Unbelievable. (Dec. 6, 1972, from the Moon)
7[about gravity on the Moon] There have been a number of people in zero gravity, but only 12 people have ever experienced one-sixth gravity. It's a totally different world. I love one-sixth gravity. If I could turn Earth gravity into one-sixth gravity, I would!
8[about the Lunar Rover] Driving that car was really something. You hit a little pothole and you've got one wheel off the ground half the time. It really allowed us to go places that we never would have been able to get to if we had to walk. The valley we landed in was about 20 miles long and about five miles across. The mountains that surrounded it just towered above everything else. We were able to cover that whole valley with the lunar rover.
9As I take man's last step from the surface, back home for some time to come - but we believe not too long into the future - I'd like to just [say] what I believe history will record - that America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow, we leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind. Godspeed the crew of Apollo 17.
