“Truly, there is no more beautiful sight than to see the Earth from space beyond. This planet is an exquisite oasis. Warmth emanates from the Earth when you look at her from space. It’s impossible to see anything but goodness. My wish is that we would allow this planet to be the beautiful oasis she is, and allow ourselves to live more in the peace that she generates.” -Dr. Ron McNair, 1984

45 YEARS AGO TODAY: On December 11, 1972, during the first moonwalk of the Apollo 17 mission, astronauts Gene Cernan and Jack Schmitt take turns posing next to the American flag, with the lunar module and moon buggy behind them. Schmitt is in the photo at the top; Cernan is below. Fun fact: Cernan salutes the flag because he’s a Navy man in addition to being an astronaut. Schmitt, on the other hand, is a civilian geologist who joined NASA as an astronaut-scientist.
