The Last Man on the Moon
Gene Cernan, a pilot on Apollos 10 and 17, became the last person to set foot on the lunar surface in 1972.
His story is told in The Last Man on the Moon, which gives a personal account of some of the main events in Cernan’s life as an astronaut, especially his involvement in the Apollo programme. Cernan flew in space three times.
Gene Cernan said "Within ten years of graduating I was walking around the world in space! That's crazy!...That's the thing about kids: don't count yourself out - you never know what fate has in store for you"
