Last man to walk on the moon dies

Post  Lamplighter on Tue Jan 17, 2017 7:51 am

Gene Cernan dies aged 82.

Cernan's death comes a little more than a month after fellow astronaut John Glenn died in December.
Cernan earned several distinctions in his 13 years with NASA. He was the second American to walk in space and one of three men to have flown twice to the moon.

But he's best remembered as commander of Apollo 17, the last mission to the moon in December of 1972.

RIP Gene, a brave man and an inspiration to all. Lamplighter

I liked it when the future held space travel and supersonic passenger flights - we seem to have gone backwards. And now another moonwalker is gone - a sad day.

I especially remember John Glenn as he rode his spaceship on my birthday. But there are still some with us. LL
