78 years old! Yes. That's right: Eugene Cernan is the last person to walk on the moon and return to earth.
That's so pathetic. In the 1960s it was people in their 30s leading the charge to get into space. I wonder if they thought that our exploration into space would be so sloth-like.
I'm so happy about the recent Curiosity Mission and Elon Musk's statement to put a Man on Mars in 10-15 years. Elon's statements seem crazy... establishing a base, potentially growing vegitation.
"Mars is the only place in the solar system where it's possible for life to become multi-planetarian,"
"We could make Mars like Earth…it's more than our life raft, it's like backing up the biosphere."
You said it Elon...
Just like JFK's commitment to putting a man on the moon and bringing him safely back to earth before the end of the 60s.
Let's remember the lunatic fringe of fearless explorers.
I hope you go in peace for all mankind, Neil...
