Apollo 17
Astronauts Evans and Cernan aboard the Apollo 17 spacecraft

Scientist-Astronaut Harrison H. "Jack" Schmitt, Apollo 17 lunar module pilot, took this photograph of his two fellow crewmen under zero-gravity conditions aboard the Apollo 17 spacecraft during the final lunar landing mission in the Apollo program. That is Astronaut Eugene A. Cernan (foreground), commander, who is seemingly "right side up." Astronaut Ronald E. Evans, command module pilot, appears to be "upside down."
