Sadly, Gene Cernan, the last astronaut to walk on the moon, dies at 82. Cernan was very brave and at one point thought he may not be returning to Earth on the Apollo 17 mission but remained cool as a cucumber. Cernan often commented about climbing the ladder back to the space capsule after the last moonwalk.
