The 15-card "News Flashbacks" subset includes a photograph of Apollo 17 Lunar Module pilot Harrison "Jack" Schmitt on the lunar surface. Jack Schmitt is the twelfth person to walk on the Moon. Schmitt is pictured with Tracy's Rock, also known as Split Rock or the Station 6 Boulder. The photograph was taken by Commander Eugene Cernan in the Taurus–Littrow valley on December 13, 1972. The Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV) is visible on the card image.

Astronauts Eugene Cernan and Jack Schmitt landed on the moon at 2:55 p.m., to begin a 75-hour stay. The Challenger touched down between mountain ranges over 7,800-feet high, in a crater called "Camelot." "Absolutely incredible," Schmitt said. "The epic moment of my life."

The Pioneer 10 space probe is pictured at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. Pioneer 10 was launched by an Atlas-Centaur rocket on March 3, 1972. The probe made its closest approach to Jupiter on December 4, 1973, at a range of 81,000 miles (130,354 km). The spacecraft reached a velocity of approximately 78,000 miles per hour (126,000 kph). The last signal received from the probe was on January 23, 2003. Pioneer 10 is the third farthest spacecraft from the Sun.

The Pioneer 10 spacecraft raced beyond the moon in record time, as it cruised to Jupiter, more than 600 million miles away. The Atlas-Centaur rocket propelled the 565-pound craft to a speed of 31,413 miles per hour 7,000 mph faster than any other space vehicle had ever flown.
