Geologist-Astronaut Harrison H. Schmitt is photographed standing next to a huge, split boulder at Station 6 on the sloping base of North Massif during the third Apollo 17 extravehicular activity at the Taurus-Littrow landing site.


  1. That was in December 1972... We just stopped. Just. Stopped.

    We've been in Afghanistan longer and have spent more money & lives than was spent on the whole Moon endeavor. From when President Kennedy said we will do this to us abandoning the moon.

  2. It breaks my heart to see how much we've lost.

    OTOH there is a guy on my Twitter feed who is a flat-earther; he'd say that this photo was cleverly faked, & he's serious. People like him are part of the reason we're no longer going to the Moon; our society is dumbed-down from what it was in the '60s.
