This is a trailer for a great looking documentary called The Last Man on the Moon. It focuses on Apollo 17 astronaut Eugene Cernan. In December of 1972, he returned to the lunar module after two and half days of surface operations on the moon, and no one has returned to the moon since. The doc tells us the story of this momentous final journey. The film features interviews with Cernan, his family, and several other astronauts.
Astronauts Eugene Cernan, Harrison Schmitt and Ronald Evans were the three brave men chosen to fly NASA's final mission. They have been written up in history books and acknowledged by the space and scientific communities, but have never received the public recognition they truly deserved. Apollo 17's voyage to the moon was the crowning glory of man's lunar exploration. This documentary features spectacular NASA footage and exclusive interviews with space scientists who worked on the Apollo program during the 60's and 70's. This is the remarkable story of the determination and courage of a generation. A tribute to three brave astronauts and the thousands of men and women behind them during the final days of NASA's Apollo program.
Like every other kid in America, one of the dreams I had was going to space. I've been fascinated with NASA and the space program for as long as I can remember, and this looks like an incredible documentary that any NASA enthusiast will enjoy. Thanks to io9!
