Lot Details
GEMINI 12 CREW HORSING AROUND—SIGNED BY CERNAN.
Extremely rare vintage NASA color photograph, 10 by 8 inches, ca. 1966 of the Gemini 12 Crew posing with a mock-up of the Gemini spacecraft, in a hilarious version of NASA image S66-46955, Cernan holding a tobacco pipe, Cooper holding a tobacco pipe and slide-rule in one hand, a push brook in the other, Aldrin holding the body of a camera, and Lovell holding the lens, his left hand in a gun position pointed at his temple, the four with large genuine smiles.
Provenance: From the collection of Anatole Forostenko, chief Russian language instructor for the ASTP astronauts.

SIGNED and INSCRIBED: "TO DOCTOR 'Z'-YOU SHOULD HAVE THIS TO WORK WITH!! GENE CERNAN." A wonderful image, giving us great insight into the personalities of these fun-loving astronauts. "Doctor Z" refers to Anatole Forostenko, who was given the nickname "Dr. Zhivago" by Tom Stafford. Stafford and Cernan were of course close friends, so Cernan was familiar with Forstenko's nickname.
