Last Man on the Moon: Gene Cernan 1934 - 2017

Another space pioneer is gone.  First John Glenn - first in US to orbit.   Today we lost Gene Cernan - last person to walk on the moon.

"As we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow, we leave as we came, and God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind. As I take these last steps from the surface for some time to come, I'd just like to record that America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. Godspeed the crew of Apollo Seventeen."
