As proposed to the Apollo Applications Program by NASA’s Manned Spacecraft Center in 1967, a single Saturn 5 launch of Apollo-derived hardware could send a crew of three on a Venus flyby mission with free return to Earth one year later. Three 30-day Earth departure seasons between 1972 and 1975 were identified. The season-open trajectory for earth departure on 4 April 1972 is developed in detail for this presentation.
