Foreword by Captain Eugene A. Cernan
During twenty years as a naval aviator, including thirteen years with NASA, Captain Eugene A. Cernan left his mark on history with three historic missions in space: as pilot of Gemini 9, as lunar module pilot of Apollo 10, and as commander of Apollo 17. Flying to the Moon not once, but twice, he also holds the distinction of being the second American to walk in space and the last man to have left his footprints on the lunar surface.
