Tell us about yourself and your company.
David Frohman: I founded Peachstate Historical Consulting, Inc. in 1997, since which time my firm has acted as a consultant and dealer of space artifacts. Our partners are the astronauts themselves, along with various museums and universities.
What can you tell us about Eugene Cernan? What makes his name stands out among the many American men and women who have ventured into space?
David Frohman: Gene Cernan ventured into space not once but on three different occasions. During the Apollo 10 mission, Cernan came within 50,000 feet of the moon's surface. Then, during Apollo 17 which Gene commanded, he became the last man on walk on moon!
What does the chance to appraise the artifacts Eugene Cernan accumulated over his various missions mean to you?
David Frohman: It's amazing. Eugene Cernan's achievements mark him as a legend in the space program. The opportunity to act as his personal archivist and appraiser is a phenomenal honor, and provided a remarkable insight into the history of manned space exploration.
