Apollo 17 commander left camera on moon

1 post in this topic

The last man to walk on the moon has revealed how he left his camera behind on the lunar surface 40 years ago, only to find that no one went back to collect it for him.

Apollo 17 Commander Eugene Cernan's camera is still sitting exactly where it was left with its lens pointing out into space; an experiment into solar cosmic radiation he hoped could be collected by future astronauts.

But 40 years on Cernan's departing footprints remain the last to be planted on the lunar surface, as NASA budget cutbacks eventually forced the closure of the Apollo programme.
