Who is the Last Person to Walk on Moon?
Most of the people answer the question, ‘Who is the first person to walk on the moon?’ as saying Neil Armstrong. But, it is a bit difficult to answer the question that who is the last person to walk on the moon till today. Eugene Cernan and Harrison Smith are the astronauts who are recorded as the last persons to walk on the moon according to the special records. This takes place in the year 1972 where they travelled in Apollo 17 named rocket. These two people were there on the moon from December 11 to 14 of that year. Among all the 12 persons who walked on the moon, the Harrison is the 11th person to walk on the moon. Though both Cernan and Harrison travelled in the same rocket, the Cernan came first from the rocket and then came the Harrison from the rocket. On the other hand, Cernan going to the moon is not the first time. That is why; Harrison is recorded as the last person who walked on the moon. But in the return to the moon for the next time, it is the Harrison entered the rocket first and then the Cernan. That is the reason why, the name of Eugene Cernan is placed in the records as the last person to walk on the moon.
