Do you believe that Harrison Schmitt, Buzz Aldrin and Gus Grissom are conspiracy nuts?
nope. I've heard Apollo astronauts Harrison Schmitt and Dave Scott talk at LPSC this year, so I've 'met' a couple from that era.
What happened on my birthday – Dec 13? These were the events that made history that coincides with your birthday. 1545 – Council of Trent begins. 1577 – Sir Francis Drake sets out from Plymouth, England, on his round-the-world voyage. 1642 – Abel Janszoon Tasman reaches New Zealand. 1643 – English Civil War: The Battle of Alton takes place in Hampshire. 1968 – Brazilian president Artur da Costa e Silva decrees the AI-5 (or the fifth Institutional Act), which lasts until 1978 and marks the beginning of the hard times of Brazilian military dictatorship. 1972 – Apollo program: Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt begin the third and final Extra-vehicular activity (EVA) or “Moonwalk” of Apollo 17. To date they are the last humans to set foot on the Moon. 1974 – Malta becomes a republic within the Commonwealth of Nations 2001 – The Indian Parliament Sansad is attacked by terrorists. 15 people are killed, including all the terrorists. 2001 – The King of Perlis has has sweared and signed th ...

You mean they don't make 'em like this anymore? Ah, no one looks down the road anymore . . . . "Get out your red/blue glasses and check out this stereo scene from Taurus-Littrow valley on the Moon! The color anaglyph features a detailed 3D view of Apollo 17's Lunar Rover in the foreground -- behind it lies the Lunar Module and distant lunar hills. Because the world was going to be able to watch the Lunar Module's ascent stage liftoff via the rover's TV camera, this parking place was also known as the VIP Site. In December of 1972, Apollo 17 astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt spent about 75 hours on the Moon, while colleague Ronald Evans orbited overhead. The crew returned with 110 kilograms of rock and soil samples, more than from any of the other lunar landing sites. Cernan and Schmitt are still the last to walk (or drive) on the Moon.
"If you thought driving on Earth is a chore, you haven't tried off-roading on another planet. So far, robotic rovers have reached out to the moon and Mars, with astronauts actually driving a lunar car on the moon during NASA's Apollo program. Those missions amount to what could be the first interplanetary road race. See how the endurance drives on other worlds stack up in the infographic below. Leading the pack is an oldie of a space mission: the Soviet-era Lunakhod 2. This huge moon rover drove 23 miles (37 kilometers) on the moon during its 1973 mission and is currently the world champion for off-world driving, winning the gold medal. In second place with silver is NASA's Apollo 17 moon rover, which was driven by astronauts Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt in 1972. The astronauts drove 22.3 miles (35.89 km) during their mission, which was the last moon landing of NASA's Apollo program. The bronze medal for space driving goes to NASA's Mars rover Opportunity, which has been driving across the p ...
DECEMBER 1972 The end of 1972 starts with an early Christmas present for Edward Gough Whitlam, as he becomes the first Labour Party Australian Prime Minister for over 23 years. His first job on his first day is to withdrawal all Australians serving in Vietnam. Also it is decided that men and women must get equal pay. In Vietnam itself Joan Baez and others visit the country and deliver Christmas mail to the American POWs. They arrived at the same time as the Americans started Operation Lineback, a sustained bombing from the air. The Operation ran from 18th to 29th December. This was the most sustained bombings since World War II, and on one day alone 120 bombers were in the air hitting targets such as Hanoi, this causes Nixon to be put under a lot of public pressure for such an operation. The Swedish Prime Minister calls this operation a massacre. The very last manned trip to the Moon started as Apollo 17 launched into space with, Eugene Cernan, Ronald Evans who died in 1990, and Harrison Schmitt and r ...
In total twelve people have walked on the Moon. Besides Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin – who were the first two astronauts to leave their bootprints on the Moon — there were also Pete Conrad, Alan Bean, Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell, David Scott, James Irwin, John Young, Charles Duke, Eugene Cernan, and Harrison Schmitt.
When I originally set out to interview Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, I sought his commentary on the Blue Marble photograph taken during Apollo 17 in 1972.

Today in History -- Wednesday, Dec. 11 (Tom Hayden, John Kerry, Teri Garr, Ben Browder, Hailee Steinfeld) The Associated Press Today is Wednesday, Dec. 11, the 345th day of 2013. There are 20 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On Dec. 11, 1972, Apollo 17's Lunar Module landed on the moon with astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt aboard; during three extravehicular activities (EVAs), they became the last two men to date to step onto the lunar surface. On this date: In 1792, France's King Louis XVI went before the Convention to face charges of treason. (Louis was convicted, and executed the following month.) In 1816, Indiana became the 19th state. In 1912, movie producer Carlo Ponti was born in Magenta, Italy. In 1928, police in Buenos Aires announced they had thwarted an attempt on the life of President-elect Herbert Hoover. In 1936, Britain's King Edward VIII abdicated the throne so he could marry American divorcee Wallis Warfield Simpson; his brother, Prince Albert, became King ...

Apollo 17 Date: 13 Dec 1972 Scientist-astronaut Harrison H. Schmitt is photographed standing next to a huge, split boulder during the third Apollo 17 extravehicular activity (EVA) at the Taurus-Littrow landing site on the moon. Schmitt is the Apollo 17 Lunar Module pilot. This picture was taken by astronaut Eugene A. Cernan, commander. While Cernan and Schmitt descended in the Lunar Module (LM) "Challenger" to explore the moon, astronaut Ronald E. Evans, command module pilot, remained with the Apollo 17 Command and Service Modules (CSM) in lunar orbit. Credit: NASA

Norm MacDonald asked David Letterman "Have you ever heard of Harrison Schmitt? He walked on the moon .. an astronaut .. a guy who walked on the moon. There are very few people who have been in the position to go hey, where's the moon? (Looking down) says there it is! Twelve people have walked on the moon .. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, ... who else? This Harrison Schmitt fellow has to be saying 'what the *** do I have to do to get famous?' Meanwhile, the Kardashians ... we know Khloe, we know Lois ..."
Only 8 men are still alive who walked on the Moon The youngest two (Charles Duke & Harrison Schmitt) are 77!
From the Blog: Being First - That isn&Neil Armstrong. That isn&Buzz Aldrin. It&Harrison Schmitt, the 12th and last man to walk on the moon. Very few people probably know who he is, despite doing something as amazing as walking on the moon. It seems as though people have a blindness to incredible things unless: It&the first time [...]
in 1972, the final Apollo mission returned. Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt hooned the lunar rover for the last time.
On this day - 19 December 1972: Apollo 17, the United States' last manned lunar mission, returned to Earth. The crew on the 12-day mission comprised Eugene Ceman, Ronald Evans and Harrison Schmitt
The last photo. From Astronautical News Astronauts Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt successfully lifted off from the lunar surface in the ascent stage of the Apollo 17 Lunar Module on 15 December 1972 at 00:55 GMT. After a successful rendezvous and docking with Ron Evans in the Command/Service Module in orbit, the crew transferred equipment and 110 kg of soil and rocks from the lunar surface between the LM and the CSM for return to Earth. Following this, the LM ascent stage was sealed off and jettisoned and then deliberately crashed into the Moon in a collision recorded by seismometers deployed on Apollo 17 and previous Apollo expeditions. Humanity has not returned to the Moon. Image: NASA
The last men to walk on the moon blasted off its surface for a final time 40 years ago. Apollo 17 moonwalkers Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt lit the engine on the upper stage of their Lunar Module "Challenger" and launched off the surface on Dec. 14, 1972.
The last two men to ever set foot on the moon (Eugene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt) did so today back in 1972. Anyone else feel that it's a crime we haven't gone back?
Harrison Schmitt, had a severe allergic reaction to moon dust during his mission in 1972.
For additional information regarding the science behind our concern, we recommend that you contact Harrison Schmitt or Walter Cunningham, or others they can recommend to you. Thank you for considering this request. These are the Astronauts and scientists who work for NASA, who wrote a letter to Nasa to NOT support any stand they made on global warming. Their argument was that the very integrity of their reputation and of SCIENCE as a whole, was at stake. No, they do not belong to this club, they can't, they're scientists, scientists study, and we have a long way to go in this NEW science, before we can make such claims. Until then, let's get to work cleaning up at ground zero here. WE can do it without having to "believe" in global warming, so don't think you're bad if you don't join this religion.

I have met three men who have been close to or on the Moon. Bill Anders (Apollo 8), Buzz Aldrin (Apollo 11) and Harrison Schmitt (Apollo 17). I am so fortunate to be doing what Delight and I do. Science jewelry has taken us to many great conventions.
£20 for a Harrison Schmitt photshoot regardles of how many in the photo looks like darn good value to me compared with Buzz Aldrin.
