Who was the last person to set foot on the Lunar Surface?
It was actually a man called Gene Cerman who was the last of the 12 human beings to set foot on the surface of the Moon.
Only 12 human beings have had the pleasure of walking on the surface of the Moon. The most famous were of course the two Apollo 11 astronauts, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, but they were succeeded by Alan Bean, Pete Conrad, Moss Duke, James Irwin, Stuart Roosa, Jack Schmidt, Dave Scott, Al Shepard, Jim Young, and the last one in 1972, Gene Cernan, as part of the Apollo 17 mission. However this is about to change. As you will have noticed thus far it has only been a Man on the Moon.
NASA has commenced the Artemis Program.
This is a United States-led international human spaceflight program. It’s primary goal is to return humans to the Moon, specifically the lunar south pole, by 2024. If successful, it will include the first crewed lunar landing mission since Apollo 17 in 1972, the last lunar flight of the Apollo program.
The intention is to use this mission to also land the first Woman on the Moon. Wearing modern spacesuits that allow for greater flexibility and movement than those of their Apollo predecessors, astronauts will collect samples and conduct a range of science experiments over the course of nearly seven days. Using the lander, they will return to lunar orbit before ultimately heading home to Earth aboard Orion.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to set foot on the Moon? Wondered how it will make you feel if you owned a piece of our amazing lunar Moon? Well there is no need to just wonder anymore
