In the late afternoon in the United States, on December 13, 1972, astronaut Eugene Cernan, commander of the Apollo 17 mission, decided to give a very short speech to the moon. In an instant he was about to climb the ladder to the Challenger lander and thus become the last man – so far – to stand on Earth’s largest satellite. Prepare some lofty sentences for this occasion. He said, among other things, that he was leaving the Silver Globe in hopes that humanity would return to it in the near future.
