Charlie Duke signed 16'' x 20'' photo honoring Wernher von Braun, chief architect of the Saturn V rocket and the man most responsible for America's dominance in the 20th century space race. On a photo of von Braun standing in front of the Saturn V rocket engines, Duke writes in full: ''Dr. Werner Von Braun was an impressive man. I met him while attending his monthly staff meeting at MSFC in Alabama. Stu Roosa was assigned with me to attend these meetings and report back to the astronaut office on the Saturn V progress. I was so impressed with his technical comprehension yet with a humble spirit. I think he had more corporate knowledge of rocketry than any person alive at the time. / Charlie Duke / Apollo 16 Moonwalker''. Duke's inscription references NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC), where the Apollo Saturn rockets were developed. Photo is inscribed by Duke in silver felt-tip. Near fine condition.
