Folks have asked for a slightly shorter version of the Gene Cernan interview just focused on the $2 bill, without going into the technicalities of the astronaut's PPK lists. Here is that shortened video that tells the story of Gene's three time flown $2 bill, and why he carried it. Enjoy!
In 2010, I was lucky enough to spend some time with Capt. Eugene "Gene" Cernan filming a personal interview about his space flown mementos, especially his three-time flown $2 bill, which I had recently acquired. This video is a tremendous insight into why he flew this particular bill, what it mean to him and his father, and the circumstances around the mementos he flew as the last man to walk on the moon.
We are thrilled to see the reception The $2 Dollar Bill Documentary is getting from film festivals and critics. And it features many of the bills from The Jefferson Space Museum and their story. It's a great film that is available for pre-order on DVD, and making appearances across the country. Click on the movie poster below for more information and to find out about local screens.
