The first man and the last man to walk on the moon. Apollo 11 Commander Neil Armstrong and Apollo 17 Commander Gene Cernan share a warm smile, camaraderie and a clasp of hands. Neil's ground breaking EVA lasted just over two hours. Cernan, as he was proud to say, spent 3 days on the Lunar surface, where he had a house, a car and a job, spending almost a full day working on the moon over 3 EVAs.
