Mission objectives

Apollo 18 was originally planned in July 1969 to land in the moon's Schroter's Valley. Finally NASA cancelled Apollo 18 and Apollo 19 on September 02, 1970 because of congressional cuts. Pressure from the scientific community resulted in geologist Harrison Schmitt flying on Apollo 17.
