Men on the Moon: Apollo 17 Panorama of Lunar Surface Link for sharing this page on Facebook
         A panoramic view of the Apollo 17 landing site. Harrison Schmitt prepares to take a soil sample in this photograph taken by Eugene Cernan, in December of 1972. The last men to walk on the Moon returned home only a few days later. It has been more than forty years since the last Moon mission; how long will it be before men walk on the Moon again?
